What has shocked you today?
 
I just learned that a friend had a heart attack yesterday (A parent of my daughter's peer and long-time classmate/teammate who works alongside me on the score table at swim meets). Seemingly young (ish), fit, and healthy, no red flags, no warning signs. I shouldn't be shocked given my stroke last year, but I am. :/ Looks like he'll escape jail/hospital tomorrow, so that's good, but still......

I'm a bit shocked to learn that in Michigan you might wind up in jail for having a heart attack.

YIKES!

I'll tell you what I didn't get shocked by today.

The spa heater or the wiring in my house.

It was nice.

My dad had a heart attack around age 44, for no apparent reason. The doctors saved him, and he's never had any trouble in the 20+ years since. Crazy flukes are crazy (unlike parasitic flukes, which are just gross.)

Does POS mean what I think it means?

Point of Sale.

orthodoc 07-12-2016 07:43 PM

Yes, I know. ;)
I was just being difficult.

It does as far as I'm concerned -scanner's nightmare

monster 07-12-2016 08:10 PM

Did you find the bit that might shock a Brit, though?

monster 07-12-2016 08:11 PM

(well apart from the grammar)

orthodoc 07-12-2016 08:14 PM

Let's see ...

"You MUST get ahead on cooking off birds"?

Idk, my ancestors were Brits so this is third-hand. Imma Canuck.

How shockingly tiny that picture is?

WOGS sounds like it might be British slang for something dirty
