7/14/2005: Fire stunt



I'm a bit late getting to this 4th of July stunt. The official caption:

Todd Grannis, 38, stands in flames on a 10-foot platform in Grants Pass, Ore., Monday, July 4, 2005, before plunging into a pool. After emerging from the water unscathed, he dropped down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, Malissa Kusiek. Grannis said he came up with the stunt through the help of his friend, professional stuntman Eric Barkey.

Yeah. The problem with that is, now you're on the hook to do something this big on every anniversary, or at least the big ones. Good luck with that, buddy.

Last night we received a phone call from a guy who wanted an out-of-hours visit.

He said he wanted to propose to his girlfriend.

I nearly wept, the idea was so romantic.

I think this is possibly the strangest thing we've ever been requested ... no, second strangest. One of our frequent flyer's daughters came with her date on prom night, him in his tux, the girl in her very lovely prom dress, to pose with her mother (in her straightjacket) for prom-night photos.

Was the prom date wearing a white jacket? That could have been a bit addling for some of your guests..........but I guess they're already there so it wouldn't really matter.



Trilby  Thursday Jul 14 03:59 PM

If a man proposed to me like this, I wouldn't marry him. I mean, obviously, he can be talked into anything.

Wolf you must be a great guest to have at parties. No lack of conversation starters for you.

Really Bri? I mean, you got to admit, he's hot!


dar512  Thursday Jul 14 04:57 PM

Yeah, but he's got a history, you know? He's bound to be someone's old flame.

Now Bri, don't play hard to get.

Anyway IMO his proposing marriage is a flag down for being slightly gullable. I know... that's prob misspelled.


Trilby  Thursday Jul 14 05:13 PM

GROAN!! GROAN TO ALL THREE OF YOU!!

And you're right, capnhowdy. Who am I trying to kid?



BigV  Thursday Jul 14 05:16 PM

Hunk'a hunk'a burnin' love, I'm just a Hunk'a hunk'a burnin' love,

Woooo!

Hey, did you know that "gullable" isn't even a real word? Look it up in a dictionary!

Oh, right. That might explain it.


Queen of the Ryche  Thursday Jul 14 08:00 PM

Gullable: capable of pooping on people who throw Cheetos to you at the beach. See: Flying Rat.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jul 14 09:20 PM

For their 7th anniversary he'll do it over.....without the pool.



capnhowdy  Thursday Jul 14 10:00 PM

let's not tell the PETA people about the Alka Seltzers.



Leah  Friday Jul 15 12:35 AM

What if she said NO, how pissed off would he be.



wolf  Friday Jul 15 01:31 AM

Well, I found out tonight that he doesn't tolerate rejection well. Not hers. Mine. Well, actually, her doctor's. Boyfriend shows up tonight, not a visiting night. He insists that he spoke to the social worker to arrange for an out-of-hours visit.

Call the ward clerk, who reads off the Nursing Information Sheet "Boyfriend may visit during visitation time." (Our hospital policy is that only immediate family may visit. Boyfriends are not automatically considered "immediate family." In our definiation, that's spouse, parents, siblings, and children over 18) So, I tell the dude, "I'm sorry, sir. The order says that you may visit during regular visiting hours."

He goes through the Social Worker story again, so I agree to go check the actual order on the patient's chart rather than going on the information that was transferred to the nursing sheet ... big as life on the chart "BOYFRIEND MAY VISIT DURING VISITATION TIME."

So back out front I go ... "Sorry sir, the order was transcribed correctly. The Doctor wrote exactly what I told you before, etc. etc."

Ever seen a really pissed off Hispanic male? "But I gotta see her, I got the ring and I'm going to propose and, and, and, YOU'RE RUINING MY LIFE HERE!!!"

I have a lot of practice at not laughing at stupid bullshit.

"No, sir. I am not ruining anything. I don't have the authority to allow on the unit. Only the treating doctor can do that, and he is not here."

"But, man ... I got the ring I took back from her and all ..." (apparently this was to be a re-proposal, not a proposal)

Coupla expletives later, the dude left.

I must say, I didn't think that a dirty tee-shirt, jean shorts and flip flops were the wardrobe of choice for a proposal. I guess I have a warped sense of romance from watching all those three-box movies.

you obviously haven't spent much time in south phoenix.


BrianR  Friday Jul 15 09:37 AM

In true South Phila, it's not a REAL proposal until you hire a Mummers string band to accompany you. True!

I imagine his ardor would be considerably cooled.

Probably not a problem, he's is show biz now. Plenty of groupies to take her place like the Girl Scouts that want him to melt their S'mores.
