OK, so I thought I was going to die!


Let me start this at the beginning. I was having some mysterious beating of the heart for a few days. To the point that it was starting to concern me. So I say "hey" I think I should go to the doctor. So I do, and he does some stuff, then an AKG. And says there may be a problem. OK. I just figured I was a bit over stressed, but WHAMMM. So they send me right up to the big hospital for a MRI type of thing of my heart. This is where the story picks up for me.

Here I am in a dimly lit room with my shirt off, laying on my side left arm extended above my head, with a lady sitting behind me on the side of the bed jamming a camera probiey thing all over my chest. Needless to say this gave me pause for thought. No epiphanys or anything. Just me thinking about the chances of dying. I thought, I need to tell Joanna to give my dog to Sam, that will be one less thing for her to worry about. It was weird. I started thinking of my death as matter of fact. Maybe it's because I didn't really think anything was wrong with me. I know this because the women rubbing jelly all over my nips was telling me so. But also because as I laid there staring at the wall, Huey Lewis was telling me ever so softly over the ceiling speakers, that everything was going to be fine. God Bless you Huey. The heart of rock and roll IS still beatin, just a bit off rythm.

That reminds me of a similar experience. I had an ultrasound of my right testicle on Monday (how weird is this that all your friends and some of mine will now know that beautiful gem of information). And while the old lady squirted cold jelly stuff on my boy, and externally probed me I had very similar thoughts. Although I don't think any of my friends would actually take Yoda, because he's worse than a hyperactive child after a can of coke and a Hershey bar (you know the kind who wears a helmet) and humps about three inanimate objects a day, and then moves on to my wife's leg.
