what men talk about in ICU
A man was placed in intensive care, needles stuck everywhere, tubes running
over his body like a spider's web, nearly comatose. A week later, a second
man was put in the same room in very nearly the same condition.
Both men lay there, near death, machines pinging, oxygen tubes puffing,
monitors ding-donging, lights flashing. After a few days, one of the men
summoned the strength to weakly raise his hand and catch the other man's
attention. He pointed to himself and wheezed out, "Jim...my."
The other man weakly pointed to himself and said, "Pad...dy."
This act tired them both out so badly it was another day before they had
the strength to try again. The first man weakly pointed to himself and
murmured in almost inaudible tones, "Scottish."
The second man replied, "Irish."
Again the fatigue set in and they both fell fast asleep. In another couple of days they were at it again
Jimmy took several deep breaths, then summoned up the strength to cough
Paddy whispered back, "Dublin."
This time they were both a little stronger and could continue.
"Cancer," said Jimmy.
Paddy replied, "Sagittarius."
Jimmy: ''you dumb irish''.......jimmy laughed so hard he died of exhaustion
