Well, on Wednesday, July 2nd, I went over to Costco to look at TVs for my mom. She really likes the HD LCDs we have and figured it was time for her to make a change. I decided to go look. It was only moderately hot here. But, hot. And real cold in the Costco. I felt funny the minute I went into the store. But, I looked at the TVs and then found some shirts that looked to be a good deal. Called my wife to tell her. While talking to her, I felt massively faint. She told me to sit down. RIGHT. Well, gravity took care of it all for me. I fell completely backwards right on my head. Cracked my skull and split the main vein back there. This caused an epidural hematoma, emergency surgery, a 5 day stay in the hospital and now a slow recovery (seems the brain doesn’t like to de-swell quickly). No brain damage (good news.) But, I do have staples all down the back of my head. So, my attractiveness to the ladies has just been drastically reduced.
I was telling a friend that I was for some reason down and depressed. She thinks that’s that stupidest thing she’s ever heard me say. That’s not me. She’s right. I’ll get better there. Just being honest.
