Jeffrey was 80 years old and had a medical problem that required a very complicated surgery. His son, Christopher, was a renowned surgeon, and Jeffrey insisted that he perform the operation. On the day of the procedure, as he lay on the operating table waiting for his anesthesia, Jeffrey asked to speak to his son.
“Yes, Dad, what is it?” said Christopher.
His dad said, “Don’t worry, Christopher. Do your best and just remember, if it doesn’t go well and something should happen to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife.”
When it comes to hybrid dogs, what breeds are crossed to create a Chiweenie? How about a Cock-A-Mo? Or a Scoodle?
Chiweenie is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund; a Cock-A-Mo, between an American Eskimo and a Cocker Spaniel; and a Scoodle, between a Poodle and a Scottish Terrier.
In September 2009, Conan O’Brien was filming a footrace with actress Teri Hatcher on the set of The Tonight Show when he slipped and fell, hitting his head on the floor. Slightly dazed, he cut to a commercial, walked to his dressing room, changed clothes, and came back out to continue the taping—but realized he couldn’t read his cue cards. “It was like a menu for an Egyptian restaurant,” he said later. He tried to continue, but producers finally stopped the Friday-night taping and sent him to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a concussion. “I promise,” he told the crowd on the following Monday’s show, “if you’re a good audience, I’ll do it again!”
