Now, I'm sure there are a few of you who are wondering why the post is entitled there ain't no bugs on me when I'm talking about individuals who have passed away. Hang with me I'm getting there.
You see a few years ago my Uncle Bob was in the hospital. I can't remember why, but while he was hospitalized he was given some medication. He had an adverse reaction to this medication. And he began to hallucinate. He thought there were bugs on him. Thank goodness the doctors took care of it quickly. After this occurred I visited with him in the hospital he told me about it, and then he began to sing this song to me.
I learned something really important that day. A person can either wallow in the fact that they have had something go wrong in life and feel sorry for themselves. Or a person can find the humor in the situation where things went very wrong. It's all in the way you see what has happened. It was one of those indirect life lessons. And he probably didn't realize what he was doing. But it has stuck with me.
So Uncle Bob I'll miss you, and I'll really miss your sense of humor. And thanks for the great life lesson.
