Some bloggers will do anything to increase traffic. Paul, my good friend, made the post linked to below. He never even told me he was ill – I thought he was still in New York. Instead people he didn’t know were poking and prodding him, and making damn sure he didn’t get any sleep.
He had a heart attack and generates traffic! Unreal. Damn, my chest feels tight…
Then he doesn’t even tell anyone – nobody! Shit – shooting pains up the arm…
He has his “coming out party” with a post that doesn’t focus on his illness, but his discomfort with how to respond to an overly-caring care-giver.
I was a care-giver for a long time – a Respiratory Therapist. I never offered to pray with a patient. I did drink with a few of them though! Damn, my fingers are tingly, and I can’t catch my breath.
Ignoring what I consider the inappropriate behavior of the care-giver – Paul was an ass. For not telling me. For not telling anyone. Honestly, Paul – I think you could have gotten EVEN MORE traffic if you would have let us all post our, “Damn, my friend is in the hospital and might die!” posts – that would have built up the hype, you know?
In any case, I am very glad Paul is ok. I like him a lot, and I haven’t won nearly enough Poker money from him yet for him to leave us.

â€œYou KNOW God is with you right now, right?â€ .. whispered she from behind me.
