Heed not what the doctors say and beek in the glorious sun; though your rhabdomyolysis keeps you frail, spread a dram of life on your concave decolletage before you bask prone and let that life evaporate through reaches of golden rays: through mysterious swells of ecstatic loss. (by whysolofi)


He goes through a salsa accident, spends two weeks in the ICU, struggles through rhabdomyolosis from the muscle wounds, and then he's out again, better than before: by day, beachbound, beeking in the sun with stereo accompaniment; by night, sipping a dram at the bar, then hitting the dance floor, and in true character, selecting his salsa... his salsa partners according to the depth of their decolletage.
