Arizona – She was his perfect match: Along with a kidney, she gave him her heart.
Ashley McIntyre and Danny Robinson of Louisville, Ky., got engaged on Christmas, less than a year after McIntyre heard about Robinson’s plight as a 25-year-old dialysis patient and decided to donate her kidney to him, a total stranger.
“I never in a million years imagined this would happen. … It was a whirlwind,” said McIntyre, her eyes filling with tears as she held Robinson’s hand in their Jeffersontown apartment. “It’s crazy how it all worked. It was all planned out by God.”
Theirs is a Valentine’s Day tale of how compassion can save lives, bring families together and blossom into love.
Good for these people but frankly I don’t care about them. Great Valentine’s Day story, blah blah blah, true love is blind, truth and time tell all. Let’s move on.
So here’s the question; would you give one of your organs to a smoking chick if it meant you’d automatically be in a relationship with her after? I don’t want to say marry because marriage is a punishment for shoplifting in some countries and the hot chick could end up being Amazing Amy. But you’re in a relationship where you’re having regular consensual sex. It’s a “normal” girl though. I’m not talking about giving up a kidney for Nina Agdal. She’s a total smoke, probably dates one of the Yankees but she’s also not famous.
I think this might be a little trickier than I thought when I first started writing this blog. I mean what do I even need a kidney for? It’s not like I’m transplanting my heart (possibly metaphorically) and I’m not going to die. There’s no way I’d be eligible to transfer my liver so that’s out. But what if it’s a lung? I feel like I’m kind of pussying out on answering but I think it’s organ specific. I think if it’s a kidney I’m in. But a lung? I think if we’re talking lungs I’m out. I just don’t think I can do 1 lung. I already get out of breath when I walk to the bar on two lungs, if I’m down to one I’m finished. So liver is out (eligibility), kidney I’m in, lung I’m out. I think that’s fair.
