The kitchen cabinet door underneath our sink has been ruined by the kids and dog. Isn’t that the way it is with everything? I can have nothing nice. Anyway, the door is always ajar at about 15-30 degrees. And the knob is at that perfect patellar position (for my patella). For the purposes of this post, I’ve measured the distance between the kitchen floor and the medial aspect of my kneecap. I’ve also measured the distance between the kitchen floor and the cabinet knob. Here are the results:
Kitchen floor to right medial patella : 17 1/4 inches
Kitchen floor to lower cabinet knob : 17 3/4 inches
I’m sure you can anticipate the danger here for my kneecap. Time and time again that dang knob slams into my knee, somehow wedging itself between my cap and femur. I sport a black and blue mark more times than not. And nobody in my house seems to care – despite the howl (or occasional curse) that escapes from my mouth. Nobody even kisses it for me. Next time you see me, check out my right knee. I will probably have a bruise. And it’s all my kids’ and dog’s fault.
