I am embracing my cankles

Mobile:  I am embracing my cankles

Not really but there is nothing I can do about it.  I would like to see my ankle bones again.  "Cankles" is an understatement.  I refer to them as my elephant legs.  Its starting to get warm and I am uncomfortable so I'm wearing more dresses lately.  Fortunately for me, I really have to lean to see my monster ankles.  Unfortunately for everyone else, they are in clear view!
