Getting Back at the Recliner

October 21, 2012

That when you settle in for a Sunday full of NFL watching and pull the little handle on the side of the reclining couch, you feel a little twinge in your back and ignore it. But then, when you push back to fully recline you feel something akin to popcorn going off in your spine and ¬†you realize you’ve burst disks, strained muscles and are trapped like a turtle in front of the TV – unable to move.

Adding insult to your excruciating injury, you neglected to get a beer from the fridge or salty snacks from the counter so you’re likely going to die in that position without food or water to sustain you as you obviously can’t get up.
