Poor ole George- a True Story

Ok,if you've read this blog up to now you have probably surmised that the author is a wee bit nuts! That having been said, this is the story of Poor ole George, now deceased, but i have to laugh everytime i think about it.

George was 56, about 60 pounds overweight , or so his doctor had informed him. Same doctor informed George that he a heart issue, arrhythmia i believe is what that called it.

One night George called up to tell me he thought he should conduct a stress test on himself, I said, ok, you've got my interest, whats the plan? George it seems had been to the dollar store where he had purchased a kids jump rope and a space heater. The plan you ask? Turn the heat up in the room, then jump rope for 2 minutes at a time all the while monitoring his heart rate with the Kathy Ireland heart rate thingy he had gotten at a garage sale the previous week. Allrighty then, i say, now George, do you really think this is a good plan? Maybe you should have one of those treadmill tests administered at a cardiovascular physicians office(Call me Crazy) George was certain that he would be able to judge his weakness, and then start on a fitness regime ( I guess using his high tech equipment from the dollar store) ok, that was at 6:15 on a Thursday night. He never called back that night, I tried to call him several times, no answer, i figured he had made himself tired and decided to go to bed early.
Wrongo.
His brother called me around 11. It seems that in the course of the stress test, George suffered a massive heart attack, they say he died pretty instantly, then he fell over on the space heater and burned his house to the ground. The 2 surviving thing from the fire? The Rubber and plastic handles on the jump robe were still in his hands.
This is for you George, wherever you are, ...............

Nothing beats the absurdity of real life, you couln't have made that story up if you tried. Unless, of course, you did.

Nope, it really happened, George has been gone for 2 years now, he was a terrific person, but you gotta wonder about the smarts level at this point. I loved him dearly.

Nobody knows the time they are going to die. Some days are worse than others and the thought of death may enter a thought or two. I wish that these days didn't exist and I even know in the future there are going to be more. George had the idea of testing his physical capabilities, I think that was good. Nows the time to take care of yourself or you will have days with a little pain. After reading this I'll pass on a test for myself other than doctor recommended. Shit if it can happen to him it can happen to anyone...

    Just goes to show you, you gotta do it now, and say it now, because in 5 minutes it might be too late.

    so... you comin?
You can't hold back on the people who matter to you and letting them know they matter, life changes in a nanosecond.

If I were gonna give myself a stress test that might kill me, I'd rather have it be something more fun than jumping rope, if ya know what I mean.

Funny (and sad) story!

It IS a funny story, and sad, i'm not sure i did it justice in print, its one of those stories that telling it our loud you just don't know if you've conveyed the incident properly, lol, i didn't even talk about the funeral, where everytime they referred to "his unfortunate demise" people started to snicker, then 3 of his brothers and his best friend, played Burning Down the House at the wake, oh, in case anyones interested. George was cremated.
I'm the conductor on the train to hell... lmao
