Tr: You say this when someone has something big happen, like a big test, or a big event and then you want to hear about it. It's kind of like, "So?" but should be used for significant events
tomorrow around 3 pm. For only about 2 minutes I was having my heart attack. I'm embarrassed to report that I even started crying for 20 seconds. Then it all worked out. My short and sudden heart attack made me think about my parents having 7 kids. How on earth could they manage the sudden heart attacks appearing and disappearing at a moment's whim? Honestly, I find it remarkable to think about my parents with seven children around and about, falling out of trees, jumping into quarried canals, smashing up cars, hitchhiking to different states, getting darts shot into their necks, losing their new school shoes (that was me), putting dog chains around their little brother's neck and pretending he was a pet dolphin in the swimming pool which resulted in near drowning (that was me as well), climbing out our window at 2am to ride our bikes around in the local park with the riffraff of the neighborhood (me again, but in fairness Big Sister did take the lead there) and playing our version of King of the Hill out in the woods, which involved throwing large rocks at people's heads as they tried to ascend to King position (All Big Sister, I watched from the sidelines).
And we had that crazy dog Henry who was nothing but a hooligan.
How'd you make it through parents? I bow down to you both and bestow high honors upon you. You kept us alive and you kept yourselves relatively sane. KUDOS, PARENTS!
