I just watched this video on what to do if someone suddenly collapses from cardiac arrest. Go watch it now and save me a lot of writing, ok? I’m gonna sing Peter Gabriel‘s Shock the Monkey until you return.
I had no idea those AED things were self-explanatory. I didn’t even know what they were called, to be honest. I took an infant CPR class when Mooch was in utero, but nothing since, so the video was definitely revelatory.
I came thisclose to simply deleting it without opening it because it was in my inbox right after this unfunny joke post:
Don’t wash your hair in the shower
It’s so good to finally get a health warning that is useful!!!
INVOLVES THE SHAMPOO WHEN IT RUNS DOWN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SHOWER WITH IT .
WARNING TO US ALL!!!
I don’t know WHY I didn’t figure this out sooner!
I use shampoo in the shower!
When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and Printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning,
“FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME.”
No wonder I have been gaining weight!
Well! I have gotten rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn dish soap instead. Its label reads,
“DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE.”
If I don’t answer the phone, I’ll be in the shower!
MOM THE PERSON WHO SENT ME BOTH EMAILS AT ONE TIME:
When you send out useful, potentially lifesaving information, don’t couple it with jokey internet crap. That’s like making me watch an episode of The Kardashians before letting me on the lifeboat.
