"Hey, My Boobs Are Up Here"

At work the other night, I had a serious limp going on. As I neared students I know during break they smiled at me, said "Hello" and then immediately looked down at my knee or in some cases said "Hello" while narrowing in on my limp. I know they don't mean anything by it. It is natural to look when something appears to be out of whack. But as the eyes went to my knee I thought, "Hey fella, get your eyes back on my boobs and stop watching my limp." Do you ever feel that way? Like you just want the focus to be anywhere but on your weak area? I think I might need to invest in some push up bras and low cut shirts to make certain the attention is anywhere other than my limp. I can just pull them out anytime I have a flare-up in my knee. I have tried the great big smile, but they have become accustomed to that so I think it is time to become inventive. Any ideas of your own?
