I Don't Know if I'd-A Told THAT

**Be warned that there are some cuss words in this video. So don't turn it up full volume in front of the little ones or at the office :)

Some bones are better left in your closet, and this may be one of them...BUT it is too funny and ridiculous to keep to myself. This video is Jeremiah his Senior year of college at Samford. He and his friends were hanging out in the Sigma Nu dorm one afternoon, when they decided it would be fun to dare Jeremiah to jump out of his second story window and grab on to the small tree outside. Stupid. Dangerous. YES, but the result is a pretty funny YouTube video.

It will make more sense if I tell you that he passed out for close to a minute. The camera is rolling for the jump, is turned off while they all freak out and try to make sure he is not dead, and then starts rolling again once he re-gains consciousness--and discovers a lovely side effect of passing out :).

I am so thankful that God protected him, even though he certainly was not protecting himself. He watched it last night and kept saying he had no idea how he did not dislocate his hip...or worse. We'd only been dating a couple of months when he did this...Glad I didn't run away scared I was going out with a madman :)

Oh Abby!! How FUNNY! I totally watched the video before I read anything, and couldn't believe that it was Jeremiah jumping!! It made a lot more sense afterwards! WHAT A MEMORY! So glad he was OK :)

Morgan just watched and all she could say was, "Mom, Jeremiah sure does have funny hair!".... hilarious. I've seen this video before and it is HILARIOUS!

Farris said...

HILARIOUS! The video is SO much funnier than hearing the story. Have you thought about sending this to America's Funniest Videos?!

WOW! I agree with Kelly, that is the Jeremiah I grew up with! Especially with all the hair. ;-)

thomas and i watched this video, oh, at least 5 times before he even changed out of his suit last night when he came home. we both just kept cracking up and watching him jump over and over again.

oh, jeremiah, thanks for letting your wife share with the world just how funny it is to see a grown man pee in his pants.

Abby! Why do guys have to do such weird things: )?? Would you have ever looked at a tree outside of your window and thought it would be fun to jump out and see if you could grab it??? BOYS!!! I'm so glad he was okay. We really enjoyed having Jeremiah come and visit us, next time you'll have to come too!

that is out of control!
i had a friend who went to give blood in one of those tiny mobile blood donation vans, well he passed out and peed in his pants and woke up in that tiny van with 2 women who wouldn't let him leave. They made him call a ride, he had to sit there with pee all over him til his mom could come pick him up!

Oh my gosh, Abby. That's funny! I think that was my brother in law in the background!? HA! Funny how all those boys survived to be now safety conscious fathers, law abiding citizens and even future doctors! Wow. I will tuck this in the back of my mind to share when one of my boys decide it would be fun to jump out of a window and into a tree. Didn't know that side affect could happen. Hmm. Funny stuff!

Abby, I have been down for the last 3 wks. I fell through my attic ceiling, landed on top of the car and then bounced off to the cement floor. I broke L1 thru L5 and have a collasped lung.( don't we wish that was caught on tape) I have laughed so much watching Jeremiah and I have watched this over and over. My 14 & 8 yr old both think they would like to try this. Oh to be young again. Thanks for sharing the laughter at poor Jeremiah's expense.

Becky said...

oh my word!! i seem to remember him to be a bit of a dare devil. was he one of the ones who got stuck out at panther creek when in high school? glad he was ok. i'm glad he has girls.

Adam said...

Abby, Grandmother told me this story a long time ago and now it has finally validated. That is hilarious!

Tara said...

Yes, Becky King, he was one of the crazy guys (along with my husband) who went canoeing down Panther Creek. My husband was the one who had weighters on...that would be Andrew, who luckily got trapped between the canoe and a tree. He would have drowned otherwise. Abby, you need to see the news footage of that whole story if you never heard about it. Andrew owes his life to Dr. Maddox because the rescue people were too scared to jump in and save him. Dr. Maddox just jumped right on in and got him!
So yes, this tape reminds me of back in the day for sure!!
