Get Well Whozum!

  1. Oct 26, 2005 #1
    Well, my boy may be really cute and sweet... but he's not always a genius...
    he made a bet with some friends today that he could run and jump off a car moving 20mph. Well, obviously it didn't go quite as he planned. He's at the hospital right now getting his arm checked out. It may possibly be broken, (though i REALLY hope it isn't.) he's also got some scrapes and bruises. he seems mostly ok. aside from his arms its mostly just cuts. i've talked to him and everything. Hopefully the doctors say its just a sprain and that he has to ice it or something. But everyone send him well wishes. He's gotta heal up before i visit!!
    Get better babe, i love you!

    :grumpy: :grumpy: :grumpy: :grumpy: :grumpy:

    i already yelled at him for that. he'd better not die before i get there! its a non-refundable ticket! ...plus i'd be way sad... like, way sad...

    anyway, thats such an unhappy thought. think happy things! so he feels better. i want him to feel better!!

    That would make sense. Whozum, what the hell were you thinking? Or were you? On the bright side, any parts that you might need to properly interact with Gale are probably OK. (It can't be sprained while flaccid, so unless curb surfing really turns you on...)

    he knows he was being less than intelligent. don't be too hard on him... he is a teenage boy you know. he's real upset with himself now too. boys will be boys. and i'm just really really glad he's alright. Send him HAPPY thoughts now. c'mon guys! pleeeeeeze! he's my baby, he needs to get better!!!

    heh... my bad... he's not literally my baby or my boy... he's my love. and i hope he's alright. they're saying its probably just a fractured arm, but he just had the x rays taken, so he's not sure yet.
    anyways, look babe!

    See, i'm the fish, and i'm sad cause you're the worm... and when you hurt, i hurt!!

    So Whozum... you'll probably recover just fine. All that you have to worry about is dodging this psycho stalker chick who's flying out to harrass you.

    So, he's just left the hospital, and he had to get a cast. it'll probably be on when i visit which sucks, but it'll be ok. i'm just really really glad he's alright. please send him good thoughts and maybe he'll heal up realy fast and i'll be able to touch his hand when i see him afterall.

    I bet you 20$ you can't jump off a hospital bed moving at 20mph.

    I did something similar when I thought I was superman and jumped off the front porch railing hoping I could fly. It didn't work even with the superman underoos and my red cape. Go figure.
    20mph doesn't look that fast while driving, but if you can run at that speed then you are doing pretty well. I've never been able to get past about 16mph myself, but I'm not the fastest daredevil out there.
    Anyway, get well soon Whozum. And wait until you heal before the next reckless adventure.:wink:

    i love the thread gale, and thanks everyone for your input, full story is quoted here:
    [quote="Adam (driver)]so for those of you who don't know hosam very well... he's a cool ass dude, but very stubborn. this turns into a problem when my stubborn ass gets into an argument/discussion with him and we see things differently... hosam believes there are a lot of things he can do or that i can't do, and i tend to disagree either way and we generally just argue about it, drop it, then resume weeks later... not today.
    today we resumed an argument where hosam believed he could run over the top of a car that was driving 20mph at him... that's right... meaning a car could drive at him 20mph, he would run at it, jump up on to the hood, onto the roof, and then control himself coming off... i disagreed. so what did we do? we put money on it and decided to actually do it.
    now it takes a ton of balls for anyone to even attempt this little stunt, so i respect that, and for that reason i decided to call thet bet a wash (meaning nobody wins) if he tried it and didn't succeed... he would get $20 if he could do it, and i would get $10 if he backed out... to be perfectly honest i was hoping for him to backout 1) because then i would get $10... and 2) because i didn't want to see one of my good friends get hurt... i mean really i thought he was going to slip off the hood and come through the windshield... but hosam has more balls then anyone else i know apparently, because he did the unthinkable and actually attempted this stunt.
    that's right, the dude runs at the car coming at him 20mph, jumps onto the hood, tries to get onto the roof but gets clipped by the top of the windshield and his foot drags along the roof of the car which knocks him sideways and he lands on the ground arm/shoulder and face first... he got up though and was fine... but unfortunately his body was not as tough as his mind and he has a fractured arm and will be in a cast for several weeks or months.
    love to all, im in a cast with only one hand to type with so excuse my briefness

    Its one thing to have balls, another thing to keep them.
    Glad its only your arm...heal quickly

    That is kind of disturbing. I'm still trying to figure out why I watched it twice.
