I Blame It On Zoning Out

Pretty much every time I’m mowing the lawn, the same thought always keeps coming back to me:

Rod Serling died because he was doing this.” (Seriously, look it up.)

    Not to destroy a legend, but I tried looking it up and only found that he died when he had his third heart attack during a 10-hour operation. Perhaps there’s another reference floating around out there?

    Since the reference turned out to be more obscure than I anticipated (you’re not the only person that mentioned this to me), I did a little more digging beyond my original source (IMDB: “On June 28, 1975, he was mowing his lawn, when all of a sudden, he began to experience some chest pains, and collapsed. His neighbor found him and called the ambulance. When he arrived in the operating room, the doctors saw that the artery leading to his heart was disintegrating and there was no hope for him. He died later that day in the hospital.”)

    There seems to be some confusion on the point of which heart attack went with the mowing instance, but most sources I found said he was mowing the lawn during his first heart attack, and had a quick downward spiral from there, so I’ll go with that version then.

    Even so . . . it was still the mowing the lawn that triggered that downward spiral. You’ve been warned. 😉
