 My car accident and losing a spleen got spoofed at a talent show Saturday night.  One of the hilarious skits was a person totally covered by a sheet being wheeled in on a gurney by two doctors, talking about “this guy Sean Noble flipped his car, we need to fix him.”

 

The person under the sheet pops up and he’s a dead ringer for Michael Jackson.  Then the music to Billie Jean starts, and he starts to sing:

 

It was just like a horror scene on a movie screen

The sky was black it was raining hard

On my way home…

It was dark, it was wet, on the road…

They claim I USED THE PHONE

It was dark, it was wet, on the road…

 

For three long days and for three long nights – Hadn’t slept at all

Leavin’ Youth Conference when the night

Started to fall

It was dark, it was wet, on the road…

 

People always told me, be careful what you do,

Don’t go around drivin’ late at night

And Mother always told me, no texting while you drive

I wasn’t doing that… but look at where I’m at

I got a –

 

Chorus:

Busted Spleen, it’s not my Liver

I flipped my car and lost my phone on the road

It was dark, it was wet, on the road…

 

They claim I USED THE PHONE

But, DON’T blame it on my thumb

So take my strong advise, don’t roll your car over twice…

 

Groovy Dance Moves…

 

People always told me, be careful what you do,

Don’t go around drivin’ late at night

And Mother always told me, no texting while you drive

I wasn’t doing that… but look at where I’m at

I got a –

 

Chorus:

Busted Spleen, it’s not my Liver

I flipped my car and lost my phone on the road

It was dark, it was wet, on the road…

Between my daughter having spinal surgery for kyphosis, an out-of-town obligation and just a really busy schedule, I haven’t been able to blog for a few days.

But I’ve been thinking.

It’s always an interesting phenomenon when a big-name celebrity dies.  The coverage of Michael Jackson’s death has been nothing short of absolutely ridiculous.  As a friend of mine said the day after Jackson died, the person most happy about it is Mark Sanford.  Yeah, remember that whole episode?  Memories are short.

My wife has been a trooper, staying at the hospital the whole time with my daughter.  With me out of town and juggling the watching of kids, I think her patience was thinning.  I got home tonight and on my desk was a target (it was a NRA official 50-yard small bore rifle target) with every shot but one in at least the #8 ring (for those of you who don’t shoot, we call this “tight grouping” and it is impressive).  It was from my wife’s recent shooting excursion with my son’s scout den.  She helpfully wrote a note on it that read, “This is just a warning… DON’T MAKE ME MAD! Just sayin’…”

Alrighty then…

My wife is a celiac, which means she has to have a gluten-free diet.  She related a little frustration from trying to find stuff from the hospital cafeteria that she could eat.  On multiple occasions she asked the cafeteria worker if something was gluten free.  “No, it’s $2.50…”

A walker (you know, the kind old people use? Or 15 yr-olds with spine surgery…) and a 2 yr-old boy are a disaster waiting to happen.

The immediate benefit of my daughter’s spinal surgery is that she is nearly three inches taller.  The downside for me is that she is sleeping in my bed, and I’m not.

Glad our playhouse got done…

Isn’t timing in life just so strange sometimes?

I’ve been insanely busy with work projects, my daughter Kinsey had successful back surgery this morning (I’m actually sitting next to her as she sleeps right now), and all this news won’t stop breaking!

SC Gov. Mark Sanford has an affair with a lady in Argentina and a really random turn of events that lead to the press conference announcing it. Farrah Fawcett dies.  Michael Jackson dies.  Congressional Democrats are pushing through the largest tax increase in the history of mankind with their Climate Change bill. Obama’s health care plan is really, really expensive and it’s going to be harder to pass than most people had thought.

Any one of those issues could warrant multiple blog posts.  Alas, the timing makes it tough.

I can’t not at least make some comment on Sanford.  I’ve known Sanford since he was elected to Congress in 1994.  He was one of the true revolutionaries.  He kept his personally imposed term-limits pledge and could arguably be the best conservative Governor in the nation.  I have long pined for him to run for President.  I have been devastated since his press conference – which was like a car accident – I couldn’t turn away.

I suppose no one really has control of timing – so I’m reserving the right to go back and blog about some of the topics above later.
