First on my “K” list is “knowledge”. But I’m afraid I’ve overdosed on clever quotes and clichés for the next decade or so. Go someplace else if you want to talk about knowledge.

Knock, on the other hand, is a great word. In English we knock on wood for good luck (how about you? and what do you say?). We girls have knockers, which is a good thing, though you might not get the best response when you say “You have nice knockers”. We can get knocked up, which means it’s unexpected, but having babies is clearly also a good thing. So, you see, knock is not always a polite word. You should, however, always knock on the bathroom door before you go in, or else you might knock over whoever is standing behind it. And she’s spending hours in the bath? Don’t knock it, because when she’s done she’ll be a knock-out.

I should really knock off telling dumb jokes, but I’m going to torture you with this one:

He: “Knock, knock!”
She: “Who’s there?
He: “Keith!
She: “Keith who?
He: “Keith me, thweetheart!”

And this is for Ana: Sometimes we get knocked down, but then God challenges us to pick ourselves up again. And we do! Please leave Ana a comment supporting her cause to get the cancer therapy she is requesting here.
