Do you remember that late 1980's commercial for Life Alert? You know the one.
It’s that “As Seen On TV” product where you just press a button and help is on the way to save you.
Perhaps you know it better as the commercial where poor Mrs. Fletcher has fallen and she can’t get up?!!!
Sure you do!
And do you remember how you used to laugh and poke fun with your friends every time one of them fell?
“Look, Johnny’s fallen and he can’t get up!!!”
C’mon. You’ve used that line before. Admit it. I know I have…and on numerous occasions too!
Well those days are over my friends. I am so NOT making fun of that lady anymore!
Tonight, as I was grazing on my salad, a disrespectful piece of cucumber went down the wrong way. No big deal, I was still breathing. So I just coughed a few times and all was fine.
Well, later this same evening, I was lying on the couch watching a documentary about the history of the paper clip (yes, I can be boring at times); eating pretzels off my belly like an otter, when all of a sudden I was really choking.
I live alone, so I couldn’t shout out to anyone. I was choking for God’s sake so I couldn’t really shout anyway!
Well, it was at that moment I started thinking about that stupid commercial. It’s funny how the craziest things pop into your mind at the strangest of times.
So here I am thinking that this is how it all ends for me: Choking on my favorite snack food, the pretzel.
And in my last few remaining moments, I designed my tombstone and made a pact with myself that I will never make fun of poor Mrs. Fletcher again……..
OK, who am I fooling? Anyone who knows me, knows that I think that commercial is freaking hysterical! I’m laughing my butt off watching it over and over again!
I’m thinking I can’t wait till one of my friends takes a spill so I can break out the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” line on them!
And now you can too! I’ve included a YouTube video of that commercial just for you!
Oh, and about the pretzel that got stuck in my throat…….It was all a ruse. I just needed a literary vehicle to compose this blog around so I could immortalize Mrs. Fletcher one more time! And that disrespectful cucumber…that part was true. But let’s just say one of us is getting pickled tonight!
Enjoy the video!
