Whenever I’m sick, I have daydreams about how great being pals with Andre the Giant would’ve been…for many reasons, but starting with being able to ask him to carry me around when I’m not feeling well. He probably would’ve done it! He carried Robin Wright around in the movie Princess Bride, so why wouldn’t he carry around his friends in real life?
Tonight I had a fever and also used an entire box of Kleenex. Just before I started typing out this post all I wanted to do was to get in a hot shower, thinking it would help clear some of the congestion so I can breathe without such a struggle and thought, “I need a lift to the shower. Sure would be good to have a pal like Andre around.”
Then, for kicks, I googled “Andre the giant + shower” and this fantastic picture popped up. So perfect. I don’t know the story behind it, but I’m just going to keep on believing that he was cool with carrying ladies wherever they needed to go when they weren’t feeling up to doing it themselves.
