The Cardiac Patient Education Video

I try to teach our patients this stuff every day. Who knew I could have used such effective teaching methods? The exception is that oatmeal, Grape Nuts, and fruit bowls are A-ok-smarty-pants approved.

I stole this from brent(inworship). I can guarantee that katdish won't make it all the way through. It's just a bit too monotonous. And she'll get really, really hungry. Like I did.

I think you could probably guarantee that Princess Penelope won't get all the way thru it. Not sure if I will even click on it, since Charlie gets kinda annoyed when the funny videos I watch are louder than the TV.

OK I made it maybe a quarter of the way through, is there a punchline later on or is it more of the same? I dislike teaching that tries to paint Heaven as something that it is not. We will have physical bodies and will eat in heaven. For that matter Heaven won't even be in the heavens it will be on a new Earth.

People need to try and read their Bibles instead of getting their understanding of heaven from pop culture.

He left out "leftover cold pizza"~ must mean that there WILL be cold pizza in heaven!

YAY!

Candace Jean July 16 said...

Yes, I believe so, Sherri. Cold pizza, sushi, and perhaps some Sesame Chicken.

And they didn't mention the Lutheran jello, so we're good.

No Nick, no punch line. Just one long boring video. Did you take this too seriously? (It's so hard for me to read the expression on your face)! Most of the food they sang about should be "no mo'" on earth. Yeah, we definitely need a new earth. Can't wait. I'm hungry.

I didn't take your POV seriously but I think they were serious ... I hope that wasn't the "this is a funny joke" face. I'm deadpan but that was unreal. Would a smile have killed that lady?

Of course she is probably thinking of all the things she has the "look forward to" in heaven. I wouldn't smile either. Personally I'm throwing my hope on the fact that a perfect body will more closely resemble my teen body in that it can consume anything and lose weight but with my adult muscles and bone structure.

You lost me at "no mo bacon". I halfway paid attention until they said "no mo griiiits".

Which brings up an interesting (not) question: Is there such a thing as "grits" up in yankee-ville, or are they just called "Cream of Wheat"?

And do you prefer sugar and butter, or salt and butter? Inquiring minds want to know...

katdish said...

To clarify, "yankee-ville" is anywhere north of Oklahoma City.

Helen said...

Just as long as my physical body will have clothes on, I'm okay. I still haven't started cello lessons, and I don't want to expose my and make the angels snicker.

Annie K said...

Who's Mo'?

He's gonna be very hungry....

Candace Jean July 16 said...

I don't do Cream of Wheat, so I wouldn't know. And I've never tried grits (does it really have 4 syllables?) because when I do, I want them the real way, not like they'd fix 'em in Iowa (where the bacon is really really good).

Now oatmeal, that's different. With walnuts, craisins, honey, and a smidgen of skim milk. So "no mo' oatmeal" really disappointed me.

@Nick - no doubt heaven will have you lookin' buff and cut, my man.

@Helen - I'm sure there are Snuggies in heaven. Fo' sure. Not to worry.

Annie K said...

Katdish... Cream of wheat is not the same thing as griiiits. Cream of wheat = ok, griiits = baaaaad.

Annie K said...

Which reminds me that a 'hush puppy' up here in 'Yankee-ville' (go Union!) are little weiners wrapped in those crescent rolls and baked.

Helen said...

There are grits here up North. My uncle Johnny loves them. He is Chicago born and raised.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

I thought those little weiners wrapped in crescent rolls were "pigs in a blanket?" Don't they have hush puppies at Long John Silvers? Is that still a restaurant?

I think I need to Google grits. What's in them?

Annie K said...

Pigs in a blanket are sausages rolled in pancakes. YUM!

Nick the Geek said...

Grits are way awesome but not on my diet. I make them with butter and sugar or honey if I'm gonna cheat my diet. If you don't like grits then you haven't had them prepared correctly.

Hush Puppies are deep fried corn bread. They will fry anything in the South. At the Texas State Fair they invented fried twinkies.

Speaking of corn bread, which isn't on my diet either, a way better breakfast (tasting not for you) is day old cornbread. I microwave it with butter to melt the butter and heat it up then put honey and milk on it till it is porridge consistency. Shoot now I'm drooling.

PS there is a very in shape version of me here but that version isn't allowed to eat anything that tastes good. Well, that isn't true but I do the South Beach Diet and so I can have the right kind of carbs but not the yummy processed stuff.

I'm hoping one of the fruits on the tree of life will be cold pizza.

Candace Jean July 16 said...

The Iowa State Fair is not only famous for the butter cow. They also batter-dip and deep-fry Snickers bars. Now I am really getting sick. Remember, I'm the nuts, seeds, and twigs contributor on here. Please don't offend me.

katdish said...

My father in law puts day old cornbread in a glass with milk and sugar and calls it "crumble-in". I'm a modified Atkins diet fan myself, so neither cornbread nor grits are on my diet. But man...here's how I like cornbread: made in a cast iron skillet with mexi-corn, jalapenos and sharp cheddar cheese. Okay, now I'm drooling...

Beth said...

Wow, I missed all this (yet again), but I did make cornbread today.

It was gooood. I like to eat the leftovers for breakfast.
