Beer and a cadaver leg

Another date, and another unique tale. You can’t make this stuff up.

Met up over a beer a 43-year-old fitness buff. Good pics and bio. Especially compared to what’s on that dating site. In person, she even looked like her pictures. Two thumbs up on that alone. Best of all, she had lots of personality.

She told me she works for a company that sells orthopedic equipment to doctors, and that earlier that day she was working in a room full of cadavers. I was quite intrigued, as human remains have always given me the heebie jeebies.

But I wasn’t prepared for what she did next, show me an iPhone picture of the cadaver leg from earlier that day! At first I didn’t want to even see it. We were both drinking cold beer, and the last thing I needed to cross my eyes was a dead man’s amputated leg.

Curiosity got the best of me, however, and I looked as she tilted her phone in my direction.


Sure enough, she showed me a amputated leg that was on an aluminum operating table. At least the sawed off side was sutured up. My stomach started feeling queasy, and that never happens to me.

I looked up at her and said, “This date will go down in history for as long as I live… I meet a woman on a blind date, and 15 minutes later she shows me a sawed off leg of a dead man’s body.”

I could tell she was quite proud… a big smile across her face the entire time. Not sure if that’s the only reason, but I never called her again…
