Have You Ever Heard of Brain Damage Being Contagious?
My daughter is brain damaged because of an aneurysm. She’s a gimp. Lucky for everybody she can function pretty normally, and they live in Florida where everybody is brain damaged.
But she may have developed a side effect we didn’t anticipate. Her brain damage may be contagious!
Here’s the proof:
Her husband bought one. Professor Electronical. Mr. Replace-anything-around-the-house, sometimes-when-it-doesn’t-need-it. Dr. Trumpet. Bought a necklace!
When Amy told me, I glanced at the link she sent and couldn’t believe it was for SIL. She confirmed it was a “boy’s necklace.”
She said a lot of the Cubs players are wearing them. He is a great Cubs fan. But he is NOT a necklace type.
I read the details on the necklace, and this isn’t just any necklace.

Ever hear of brain damage being contagious? Should I tell his sister, the holistic healer? Should I tell his Dad, the Cub Fan Clan Leader? I could tell his wife, but she wouldn’t remember because of her brain damage.
He’s lost it. I swear. He’s lost it.
It looks like a dog collar. And sounds very New Age. And someone is actually selling these, and someone is actually buying them?

@Gretchen: Well, yes, yes, yes, and yes. Sounds like a copper bracelet deal – except MLB gets a cut!
After reading an article from the NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/25/fashion/thursdaystyles/25Fitness.html?pagewanted=print about the potential benefits, and then reading another article in the NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/22/sports/baseball/22shea.html I thought it might make sense to help support my favorite team and possibly feel better whilst doing it. Hence the purchase.
There are 5 members of my immediate family at the Cubs game at this very moment, and I can guarantee that none of them are wearing a necklace like that, let alone ANY necklace. They are die-hard fans, traveling over 100 miles one way several times a month just to watch the Cubbies play. If I gave them one of these necklaces for Christmas I’d get strung up or shot.

@Catch Her In the Wry: Neato! This is the old-timers game. The first game to be broadcast in Hi Def and they are broadcasting in black and white!!! SIL is NOT happy.
When they come home with necklaces, you will have to eat your words! 🙂
Be sure to get a close-up photo of SIL wearing this necklace and looking trendy/happy. Then you can show it to him 5-10 years from now so you can hear him say, “I can’t BELIEVE I wore that thing!”

@me again: Excellent idea, so let it be written, so let it be done.
@Professor Electronical: Sorry, your post got held up due to restriction by the TSA or somebody. After a large bribe, it was released today.
You and your Cubbies need all the planets to align and perhaps this magnetic pull can get that done.
I think it will go beautifully with the bling turqoise ring he bought on our trip out West!
