LIFE BEGINS WITH WOOD

This podcast literally changed my life. One day an Oldsmobile was coming down a dirt road at top speed when one of its tyres suddenly came loose. The driver frantically rushed to put on the spare and in his hast he failed to see the vehicle headed straight for him until the headlights where all but blinding his eyes. Awaiting sudden death with a thunderous crash he was stunned to realise he was still of this world. Looking up he beheld a vast figure guarding him from the crumbled wreck of the previously oncoming vehicle. It miraculously did not seem to have left a scratch on him, which was impossible considering the car was now barely fit for the scrap heap. “Who are you?” the man asked with amazement. “Wood…Sam Wood”, answered the saviour. He paused as his head turned to the cries of another innocent, “now, we best deliver your Mrs’ babe, it sounds like she’s crowning”. I. WAS. THAT. BABE. While my time left now is short I go to my death knowing I was in the world of a great man who has the strength of Hercules and the immortality gene of Paul Rudd.
