Here a few things that you should not do when you are staying in a motel 175 miles from home:
1. Don't leave a message for your wife like this:
"Honey, I may be having a stroke*. 911 has been called".
2. Don't call her from the ambulance (with siren blaring).
3. If you do call her from the ambulance, don't tell her:
"Every thing's fine. No you don't need to drive over. Yet."
"What should you do? Relax and bake a cake."
I hope that you learn from my mistakes.
*I did not have a stroke. It was a "transient ischemic attack".
There is a lot more to this story that will come out in the coming days. Stay tuned.
