Here Is A Thought On A Friday.

You know that thing in movies when someone appears to be dead and someone else is all “NO! Don’t leave me!” and then hugs their body and cries, and then the apparently dead person starts breathing and is totally ok?

Well, I just want to make it clear that if I’m ever the apparently dead person, I would prefer if someone performed CPR on me instead of just giving me a hug. I mean, I believe in the power of a hug to turn your day around, but I’m not as confident in its efficacy in resuscitation. I’m just saying, try CPR first, then if that doesn’t work, you can hug me.

  1. Hilarious! Although I don’t know what it would say about my friendship with someone if they like hugging dead people…it’s like I never knew the person!

  2. Crazy with a Chance of Rain says:

    I’d also like someone to try the manic, absolutely desperate, cry to the heavens and beat down thunk to my heart with all their strength and desperation. If that doesn’t kick start it, find the nearest vampire and make me undead. Then, once I’m undead, you can hug me… and become my first meal.

  3. Dana says:

    Hugging can kind of be like CPR. I mean if you hug the sternum firmly and quickly 100 times per minute.

  4. Yes!

    It’s like watching scary movies and the people are in a group and someone has the BRILLIANT idea and says “Hey! Let’s split up! The killer can’t get us all if we’re not in a group!”

    I’m definitely going to be the one who starts shouting “Hell no! I’ve seen enough scary movies to know everyone dies if they split up! You are all stuck with me – I’m going to be singing opera this entire time just to help the killer come find us in a group so we can all get him together, because no way in HELL am I splitting up!”

    Or something like that.

  5. “We all need help with our feelings. Otherwise we bottle them up, and before you know it, powerful laxatives are involved. I really believe if we all reach out to one another we can beat this thing. I’m always here if you need a hug, … but not a real hug! Because there’s no touching, this school is sensitive to wrong touching.”

  6. Or when the injured person says something like “It’s no use.. I’m dying” and the other person just seems to accept it. I mean, I’d hope that the person with me would make a little more of an effort to keep me alive, not just passive acceptance of my seemingly inevitable death. I mean, am I a doctor? I once thought I was dying after a paper-cut so don’t take my word for it! Get a freakin doctor!
