Wordle 282 – another rather tricky one for pulling off my words-in-given-order-with-rhyme stunt.
Water become icy:
Shrill scream as you sense stitch strike …
To wake seems dicey;
Lungs singe in peak of pain like
Iron circle that tightly round chest one may draw;
But coughed-up blue ribbon means living once more.
Do you know that for CPR the old leaning on chest is still probably the best method? Kneeling over with hands interlocked and stiff arms, then pushing hard to the rhythm of either Stayin’ Alive or Another One Bites the Dust, depending on whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. That’s 100 to 120 compressions a minute.
