|Some men really deserve to be worshipped

On Friday I went up to Emerald for GemCo Players Australia day festivities. Its an hour drive and by the end my arm was completely useless and I was close to tears. I wandered around for a bit, hoping that movement would return but by 7pm I was forced to admit that there was no way I could drive home. So what does one do, stranded 50kms from home? They call Nimrod who drives that distance to pick me up! My car was housed in Emerald but I got home thanks to Awesome Man Number One.
So I exist for a few days without my car. I could barely drive so it didn't make much difference. On Monday I go to my physio appointment, pretty much in tears because Monday was a Bad Day. The physio is distressed to see that two trips to her every week for six weeks have done nothing and refers me to a new physio. Simma picks me up from the physio and walks me to my big brothers house. Note, Awesome Man Number Two! I arrive at Jarrod's house, hug him, collapse on his bed and begin shaking uncontrollably and nearly threw up from the amazingly intense pain that has suddenly struck. Big Brother Jarrod stays with me the whole time, gets me medication and a heat pack. Note, Awesome Man Number Three.
By the time Nimrod is out of work, the pain has subsided enough for me to go with them when he and Jarrod drive back up to Emerald to get my car. Big Brother takes my car to go and visit a friend and Nimrod drives me back to my lad Paul's house. Paul makes me have a hot bath, cooks me tea, gives me a massage and puts me to bed. We are up to Awesome Man Number Four. Jarrod drops my car off at Paul's house at 3am and walks home. It is about 5 or 6 kms. He filled the car with petrol and washed it.
The next day he gave me a bike.
I don't know what I've done to deserve these four incredible men in my life but I sure do know that I need to get them massive, expensive presents.
Oh, and a fifth man has offered to drive me up to Emerald today for a rehearsal, wait around for the two and a half hours and then drive me home. Believe me, I know I am blessed.
