What a Way to Go

I guess I would classify this as bizarre news, and I have no photos for obvious reasons:

You may or may not have heard by now that that the body of a 35 year-old-man was found in a locked video booth at an Adult Book store in Houston, Texas.  The man had been captured on video entering the store the previous evening.  The store manager became concerned when there was no response when he knocked on the door at 2:00 pm in the afternoon.  Unlocking the door from the outside, he was startled to discover the corpse.

Interestingly enough, in Bonn, Germany, in 2008, a 54-year-old man was found dead in a video booth in a porn shop there.

 Sadly, both deaths were premature.  (I'm saying the average life expectancy for men today is around 75 or so, isn't it?) 

One has to wonder if they came and went at the same time?  Were they wacked?  Cause of death:  Stroke?  If there was a perpetrator involved, I hope he doesn't get off.

And you thought the worst thing that could happen to you is that you would go blind or develop hairy palms?  Perhaps you'd best think again!  Also, you might want to think twice before visiting a place where you've said you wouldn't be caught dead.

I know I shouldn't make light of this; it must be sad and embarrassing for the family.  I will not type another word.

You can't convince me to stop at places I wouldn't be caught dead in. Heck, any place can kill me now, a slip, a fall, a cough and swallow the wrong way. Remember the song so many ways to leave a lover? Well, there are so many ways to die!

Long story, short. I have this reputation for knowing someone wherever I go. One night, we went out to dinner with our best friends. The two husbands thought it would be hilarious to jump out of the car at the end of the evening while my bf was driving and I was in the passenger seat. Wine may have been involved. My friend, in turn, thought we'd get our revenge by hauling butt as the light turned green. We laughed and then turned back around to pick them up. They were nowhere in sight and they left their cell phones in the car. Well, they'd jumped out of the car in the seediest section of town and we were worried. We ended up, after searching everywhere, looking for them in the local strip club. And of course, within minutes, I heard my name being called. I could have died right there on the spot. It ended up being a gay hairdresser I know. We were both wondering what the other was doing in there. He was doing the strippers' makeup. I was looking for a husband to beat down. He wasn't there. He was walking the 10 miles home. I let him walk.

Your story is fabulous. I hadn't heard it.

There is so much I want to say, but all words seem to have connotations that make them puns. Am trying not to smile ... but it's not working ... great post.

Jen: I think he probably did. Or they both did.

Glen: I meant I wouldn't type another word on this topic. You're not rid of me that easily!

Eric: Whether you like it or not, the twig did not fall far from the tree! You have my sick sense of humor!

Clipped: So glad you like my work. I get paid a few cents every time someone reads an article at Associated Content, so read away! lol
