As if millions of elbows cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced

   I was on my way out to take the dog for a walk when my wife stopped me at the door. "You should," she suggested, "take a hat, and a jacket, and maybe an umbrella." She looked up at the rapidly greying clouds scudding across the sky. "I've got a bad feeling about this," she said.
   "Oh, so what," I asked. "You've got The Force, now?"
   "No," she answered. "I've got The Arthritis."

The Arthritis is an energy force, Young Littleskywalker.  It surrounds us.  It penetrates us.  It binds the galaxy together.  

Seems like everyone's arthritic aches have been kicked into overdrive this spring.  It's a weirdness.

Awe, but one lives a longer, healthier, fuller life if one listen's to his wife regardless of her methods of divination.  -  Barbara
