the woman with no spleen
I met a woman today who has no spleen. She is very worried about her son having sex. She read that the AIDs virus passes right through condums and stores itself in the spleen. Then it sits there. For years.
She lost her spleen in a motorcycle accident.
She lost her husband in that accident too.
It hurt more to lose him than to lose her spleen, I think. She has not dated since and that was sixteen years ago.
Her son is eighteen and dating now.
The man who hit them was an unlicensed driver.
She drives a bus.
