Definition of a Good Man

I just got off the phone with one of the FBMG Minions.  He probably doesn’t want me to reveal his real name online, but if you read gun forums, you may have seen posts from somebody who goes by Atomic Ferret.  He went through some pretty significant surgery yesterday, but is doing fine. 

 

Now why did Atomic Ferret need surgery?  There was nothing wrong with him at all.  Allow me to elaborate. 

 

Atomic Ferret’s brother has a degenerative kidney disease.  A.F. gave up his kidney to save his brother’s life. 

 

He’s known about this for a long time, but he didn’t tell any of us about it, because he was too humble.  We got suspicious when he wouldn’t eat sugars and breads like the rest of us hanging out at the gun store, (God bless the Mad Greek in Draper Utah and their super addictive gyros) but we chalked it up to him being on a diet. 

 

Finally, when we did find out, (because I was harassing him mercilessly about why he was eating the toppings off of a pizza, but leaving the bread, I was like “you greedy bastard, don’t eat the good stuff, and leave the crust for us!” he admitted that it was doctor’s orders) he was too humble to admit that it was a big deal.  It was just something he needed to do to help someone in need.  And he said it like it was obvious that anybody would do the same thing.  But that’s why A.F. is a good man. 

 

The operation is over, everybody is doing fine.  Personally, I stand in awe of that kind of sacrifice and humility. 

 

Now if I was a young single guy, I would find a way to insert the kidney story into every conversation I had with a single girl.  But not A.F, he’s too cool for that. 

 

And Ladies, he is single…

  1. He did a great thing. Roll for initiative!

  2. I’m jealous. My brother would be trying to pawn off my stuff while I was still on a deathbed.

    Well at least I got my dog.

  3. Tell him I sent my “Get Well Soon” wishes. He’s a heck of a guy.
