Wanna cause a mild panic?

Be a good looking white guy, late 30's, carry around an extra 20 pounds or so...

Then call your wife at work one morning and tell her your chest and neck hurt really bad and that you are short of breath...

Pass the kids off on a neighbor so that you can go the hospital...

For fun, get a little nauseous and dizzy while you are waiting for your wife to come home to drive you to the ER...

And just wait till you see how fast the Emergency Room staff jump when you come slinking in complaining of chest pains and the rest of the above symptoms and being a goooooooood looking fat white guy.

Anyways, all is well now. Back home after a morning in the ER. Did not get a good explanation from the docs. But all blood work and tests looked OK.

Which is good for me. Because I sorta like being a fat, handsome white guy.

In the movies, if it dont kill ya, it always turns out to be a bad case of GAS.... Glad you are okay. The world seems to have a limited supply of goooooooood lookin fat white guys.

Lucky for you it is only 2o lbs. I have 30!

I did the chest pain thing last fall. Definitely not fun.

Hope you are ok. I have read that working on old tractors will lower your blood pressure. Maybe you need an old tractor!
