I had a fever and lung infection and have to go to bed and take lots of drugs. My first tip off was that I could not breathe. I have menopause and very severe hot flashes. So. The other day I said to my partner, 'I am having this one big long hot flash that basically has lasted all day. Isn't that odd?' My partner, he is watching, 'Year One' movie, and he just says, 'Uh huh.....' and starts chanting along with the dialogue('Yeah, he just kept running his head into that rock until finally, he just couldn't pull through'). Today at the docs she said, 'You are running a fever'. And I was like, 'how am I supposed to tell the difference between that and these &&&&&&&&&&&& &&&&& &&& hot flashes?' I read this one in a magazine years ago: A team roper had a tooth pulled, and it was killing him so he asked the dentist for pain pills. Then off he went to the rodeo taking oh, a couple pills, on the way. Waiting to start, he was kicked by another horse in the chute. Delightfully unaware, he looked down at his thigh and said, 'well ain't that lucky, he missed me', missing the large poop-filled hoofprint square on his thigh. He runs his horse out, steps off to rope the calf, and goes down like he's shot. The EMT's keep shouting at him, 'You broke your thigh!' and he's like, 'Whaaaa???? It don' huuuuurrrrt.....' Any of you folks got some good stories of the disease or injury you did not know you had?
