I’m noticing a very strange and scary trend happening in the world right now, and it’s making me very uncomfortable, as it should you too. As I was watching a rerun of House, the medical show with the guy who has a cane and walks around with a limp, acting all “smarter than thou” and everything he says always perfectly fills his wit quota for the hour and who rides a motorcycle which confuses me because where does one put a cane when one rides a motorcycle(?), but that’s neither here nor there, but his limb being affected strangely has to do with what I’m writing about (which it didn’t on the inception of this blog thought). So, the rerun, I’m assuming it’s a rerun because I don’t actually watch the show on a regular basis as this was MAYBE the third time I have ever seen it, so if it isn’t a rerun please feel free to correct me in the comments below, or if it was, praise me in the comments below, thanks. So I’m just gonna go with “rerun” based on the fact that it was on “rerun’y” kind of channel, and since I only have rabbit ear antennae to watch TV and not cable, I’m going to bet on the higher end that this was a rerun, and the rabbit ear thing goes pretty well with Easter and that wasn’t the intention of mentioning rabbit ears in this blog either, but now realizing that this isn’t even about Easter, go ahead and forget that I made the connection, except for the fact that Easter is only five days away, so … it still works … kinda. So, the rerun, right, sorry. The episode is about a girl who is going to have to lose her arm because of cancer, and as I’m watching it, I start to think about the movie about the guy who fell in a cavern who
was played by that guy who really sucked at hosting the award show where they give people gold statues for being in movies. So as I’m watching the show, I realize how upset this girl is in having to lose her arm, and it makes me think, “Wow, I guess losing a limb, arm in particular, would be on the high end of suck. What would I do? Heck, what would Jesus do?” Then I started to realize, hey, they just made a SECOND movie about arm loss where a surfer chick who isn’t played by that one country singer girl who was on that show about people who win recording contracts because they can sing and America votes for them, and that old lady used to be on it who had bad 80’s music videos. Anyway, so this surfer girl gets her arm bitten off by one of those characters that played Jaws in that movie about … Jaws, but even after losing her arm she continues to be a surfer and it’s supposed to be really motivational. So now I’m all worked up because I feel like we’re trying to be told something, by some higher power, or maybe just the movie people, and by something, I mean shit ass scary, and not in the “look what you can
overcome” kind of way, but in the the “something wants you to grotesquely lose a limb in some extreme sport” kind of way. And as I sit here and type, I think, what if I really had to lose an arm? Which one would I pick? How could I get this blog done on time? Do you have any idea how long it would take to type all this nonsense with one hand? And would they make a movie about me? “Blogger Boy”, the motivational movie about a typer who loses an arm but continues to type, just slower so his readers have something to … read. I bet they would! But if they didn’t then I would write it, it would just take a whole hell of a lot longer to finish. So let’s hear it for two arms!! Hooray!!
