New Medical Discovery

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I recently noticed a little-known medical condition which I have tentatively named ‘policeman’s ankle’. I wonder how prevalent this condition is?

I’m not sure how long I’ve been suffering from this malady as I’m not a great one for paying much attention to the state of my own body. I’d hazzard a guess that it’s possibly years & years.

I recently found that although averagely hirsuit throughout my rather fine male body, the hair on my legs stops abruptly about six inches above my ankles. There is not a hair in sight from that point south until you reach my toes.

I have no meaningful medical knowledge but I believe the root cause is solely to do with the fact that I have, for in excess of 25 years, worn high ankle boots every day for work. They appear to have had a sandpaper effect & rubbed my lower limbs devoid of hair. I mean it’s as smooth as a baby’s bum down there.

I’m not sure if I can go onto a public beach in the summer now that I have noticed. I’ll be constantly glancing down to check if a follicle has sprung root or looking around wondering whether hordes of people are staring at me.

Does this happen to all wearers of higher-than-ankle boots?

I wonder if I can sue…

Check it out

I was just checking out my site stats and found that I’ve had about 240,000 hits since I put up the little stats widget thingy thing in May 2006 which tells me stuff about my visitors, like how many there are and how they found the site.

I noticed a couple of folk have come here via a police blog I haven’t seen before. It’s gotta have a top prize for a brilliant name – Police, Camera, Paperwork!

Go and check it out and while you’re there, scroll down to the "A Disclaimer" article and have a look at the Ali G video where he trains with the US Police. I’ve not seen that one before and it had me in tears.

You can find the blog at: Police, Camera, Paperwork
