A couple times before it was due to Yellow Jacket stings, including once when I was actually checking out (in shock, unable to see but having peaceful thoughts) before my wife got the Epi Pen and stuck it in my leg; I peed my pants (TMI, I know) and came around. The previous time (pre-Epi Pen, pre-therapy) I was alone and eventually came out of it with my cat sitting on my chest. That must’ve done it because the allergist told me I should not have lived.
This time it was due to a tree that just came down on Main Street, which I only avoided by jamming the breaks so hard I almost put my foot through the floor.
The tree was really big. It was rotted, broke into huge pieces and it came down on the power lines, which of course knocked out our power here at home. No A/C and it is HOT out there. Beats the alternative though. Anyway, it was one of those things where you don’t really register what you are seeing for a second. I’m like, oh wow… HIT.THE.BREAKS!
Then I called the PD.
We still have internet and the Genie is supplying power so… onward we go. Still kickin’… but almost maybe not. Again. I wish I’d thought to get a picture so I could post it; but whatever. I think I’ll take the rest of the day off and go for a run.
