I am now doing the rehab exercises for my fractured ankle.

Having been through physical therapy five years ago when I sprained the same ankle, I was allowed to do the exercises at home. Therapy involves some stretches and writing the alphabet.

Writing the alphabet was the most challenging exercise because my left ankle is the one fractured. I am right-handed so figuring out how to “write” the alphabet with my left foot is difficult.

As I was trying to remember which way a “j” curves, I thought of the Chinese student living with us this year. If he sprains his ankle, will he have to “write” with his ankle in Chinese? chinese-jSomehow a plain English “j” seems less complicated.
