FIRST: AH HA, Lisa is right in her comment:
Wait... I want to solve the “D” in fridge....It used to be called a “Frigidaire”. Have a good day. Lisa… She is absolutely right! How did I miss that? Fridge does come from the product name, Frigidaire, not Refrigerator. Thanks…
Humans are very ignorant of REAL life at times. You know there are things that will kill you if you eat them, right? Try arsenic. Or if you have a bad allergy to peanuts, and eat a hand full, you will suffer and probably die.
(I learned that once when camping at Standing Indian in NC once. I have told it here before. The man would have died had the Ranger not gotten him to the hospital in time.)
I know folks up in Wisconsin that grow mushrooms to eat or sell. I don’t know when I became aware you could die from eating MANY KINDS of mushrooms, but I became leery and only eat what I can buy in the produce section.
An acquaintance of our family, known to me as ‘Doc’ once with a bad case of sugar diabetes. He refused to follow a logical, prescribed diet. He loved cake and ice cream. He actually made a statement, “I will eat what I want to, if it shortens my life 10 years, SO BE IT!”
He was in his 40s, his mind was picturing, just dying at 60 vs 70 yrs of age. He never thought about the suffering before death he would experience. Both legs were amputated due to the disease. NOR that his mind would be stolen due to the disease.
During the last few years of his life he asked my BIL, “Why did God allow this to happen to me? I have served Him, lived a Christian Life now look at me!”
BIL said the man had enough pain without reminding him that he had basically asked for his condition.
My mama also had her legs amputated, but from lack of use, NOT diabetes. Thankfully mama’s mind left her and she didn’t seem to know her legs were gone, THAT was a blessings.
A sad smile at the above situation. I was talking to Doc’s daughter about our parents’ conditions, I said to her, “At least Doc hadn’t lose his memory.”
She quickly said, “Jack, dad is crazy as a bed bug!”
Lesson: We SHOULD we should pay close attention to our doctor on serious health issues.
