Nope.. true story<quoted text>
Very cute. Sounds like another Big D made up story where Big D is always the hero.
But not the funny story, when I finally came too after a rather experimental surgery ( whole family in the quiet room ) my brother happened to be sitting next to my bed when I woke up.
They didnt know how much of me was still there because of the type of surgery it was.
He asked me if he could get anything for me, I was only awake for seconds but I said "yes, a poster of Rita Hayworth and a rock hammer" and then fell back asleep
He was worried, but when he relayed the response to the family in the next room my wife again broke out laughing... she said "That is one of his favorite movies, and if he can come up with that under all that medication... he is doing good, he is saying he wants to escape this place
It was a reference to The Shawshank Redemption, and yeah.. I wanted out
That was some 16 years ago.
But I wasnt the hero, the Drs were, not some God or other, not some prayers, but the Dr's that spent years in medical school and actually devised new surgeries and techniques to save lives, they are the heroes.
It always amazes me when a Dr does a fantastic job, and goes without recognition while people thank their imaginary playmate instead . very rude.
