Stroke or Joke?

Only in MY life would my H be having some sort of weird muscle spasm & I think he was joking. He had some weird thing go on the other day that had all the symptoms of a TIA or mini-stroke.

Not the least of which was major facial droopiness & drooling w/ slurred speech. I noticed it quickly but thought he was joking w/ me. He looked too ridiculous.

A few moments later, I could see that he was having trouble standing & walking, so I approached him to see if he was ok. I assisted him back to the car. I kept asking him to smile. He looked so ridiculous & I also kept asking him if he was joking w/ me & it was hard to hold back my laughter. Then I got a bit upset thinking he BETTER not be joking w/ me.

He looked like the Joker in the Batman movie when half his face was melting off.

It reminded me of the time when we were camping @ the beach. H was out swimming w/ the 'guys' in the ocean. We were all fascinated whenever the life-guards had to 'save someone'. So when the life guard jumped down from his tower, ran to the water & dived in....I assumed my position @ the shoreline w/ all the other 'looky-loos' to see what all the fuss was about.

"HEY! That's MY H!" He had gotten caught in a riptide but the guys didn't believe him & left him out there. So instead he got rescued by the lifeguard. LOL

That's the price you pay for being the "funny guy" everyone knows, I guess.
