My good blogging friend V-grrrl is having surgery this week for atrial fibrillation of the heart.Â She’s been waiting four months to have this done.
Now, God loves to throw in obstacles.Â Â Surgery is just not enough drama.Â Why not have a volcano with an unpronounceable name, EyjafjallajÃ¶kull, blow up a week before the surgery, stranding her husband in Europe until four days AFTER the the scheduled surgery?
Luckily, V-grrrl’s brother is coming down from New York to help.
Good luck, V!
V — Before your surgery, I wanted to leave you with something inspirational, something to think about in case you get nervous before the procedure.Â Unfortunately, I’m not very good at pep talks or new age sentiments.Â Instead, I’d like to share with you this comment I received today on on a four year old post from a writer named Shane.Â I think he says it better than I ever could in a stand-alone blog post.
From a comment on “Briefs or Boxers.”
What’s ironic about this is that a generation ago all guys wore plain white briefs.Â It meant you were athletic and confident. Boxers were for old men and fat guys.Â During the last 20 years there’s been a total reversal of this. I vote for briefs because they provide support. The sperm-count thing has actually been proven a myth, and in any case, what young guy actually wants to get a girl pregnant?Â If you wear boxers your balls will hit the floor by old age. Plus, there not at all suitable for sports or anything athletic. The pendulum is swinging back towards fashionable briefs. Boxers only became popular in the early 90â€™s because of the baggy jeans style. They have no real function, except maybe as sleep-wear.Â If a girl rejects you because of your underwear â€“ find someone better.
Remember that.Â If a girl rejects you because of your underwear â€“ find someone better.Â Translation — the wise man cares less about the material of the house, then finding a way inside!
Wait, what does this have to do with your surgery?Â Well, actually nothing.Â I SAID I wasn’t very good at pep talks.
