Calcification Calculation

Begin with one heel spur, left foot. Move on to bunions, one each, left and right. Adding insult to injury, a divergent, bulging knuckle points the right pinkie finger northeasterly. Finally, bursitis of the shoulder. Times two. That makes fifty-five, and counting.

Answer #10 to gargle169 question: 'What does it all add up to?"

  9. Reminds me of my orthopaedic exam which went pathetic. Anyway, it is crazy to calculate one's age by the points of ossification. And one helluva headache to remember the ages
