Forgot she shot him

The strange case of Roberta and William Randall of Phoenix, Arizona. She shot him in the face while he was napping, then forgot she shot him. He didn't realize he had been shot. Apparently the hole in his cheek didn't make him suspicious. Nor did the note she had written for him, "Bill, you've been shot. Call 911."

About that "Brother-in-Law" who took him to the hospital: Was that his wife's brother, or the husband of his sister?

My wife can forget in 2 seconds what I just told her. I can easily see this happening.

"Bill, you've been shot. Call 911. Pick up bread and milk on your way back from the ER."

"I just feel a little out of sorts -- nothing, really. You know, the face paralysis and blood vomiting. It just has to run its course."

I wonder what he did to make her do that. 😝

Patty, he probably forgot to pick up the bread and milk. Seriously, a neighbor of mine stabbed his wife in an argument about who would bring in the groceries.

Certain dispositions require little in the way of provocation to resort to violence, unfortunately.
