If you ran an ad for your heart, what would it say?

Asked by Simone_De_Beauvoir (38942points) May 31st, 2009

I’m shamelessly stealing this question from a wis.dmer and a friend – I don’t remember what I’ve written back then and it’s all gone now but people put some amazing things down…I’ll try again…if you were advertising your heart, what would you write about it? here’s my answer:

Quarter of a century old, this heart still likes to think itself young, beats passionately for one and tightens for many; occasional pains and irregular rhythms, tries hard to contain itself from so often experiencing joy and has an indefinite capability to love

Eat more greens and fruit, stay away from donuts and pizza, like I do.

May not be your style, but certainly functional.

No givebacks.

Cozy, strong foundation, great condition. Must see, won’t last! Subject to owner approval.

Has been broken a few times, but in general it’s a happy heart. Loves with all its being. Has no capacity. Just keeps growing. Is in perfect health. Has recently passed a stress test & echo-cardiogram. Plans on being around for many more years to continue loving & being loved.

@Blondesjon: Your heart was Removed By Fluther Moderators?!?!? Wow, that’s some serious moderation.

Mine would say: Strong, well-traveled, well-worn pumping mass of memories – unfettered by sentiment but warm and inviting to anyone willing to overlook its’ flaws – as practical as it is lonely – hoping to hold on to that which it knows it does not deserve.

Heart Available
Free to a good mediastinal space. Well scarred, but fully functional. On last echocardiogram got MVP!

Good heart seeks able body.

essieness's avatar

Warm and inviting with lots of extra space to love. Runs well when properly maintained. Will go into permanent lock-down mode if misused. Please follow directions carefully.

Misused. Still works.

nearly a half century old, well used, well maintained, and always ready to add more love for new friends and acquaintances.

Take twice a day, orally.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Very big, strong and healthy. Capable of accepting and giving unlimited amounts of love, compassion, generosity, and kindness.

benjaminlevi's avatar

Contains no artificial components! Hasen’t stopped working once in the twenty one years of use.

Needs repair. Leaks occasionally.

Fyrius's avatar

In pristine state, almost never damaged. A relic from more romantic times, when heartsmiths forged their works with style.*
Kind and sentimental by nature, but rather underused, and often reined in by a more authoritative brain. Dreamy and idealistic. Prone to anomalous behaviour; grateful to those who can forgive its quirks.
Recently cultivating courage.

*Small print: Actually it’s a cheap melodramatic replica, factory made in 1987.
May contain nuts.

Big, compassionate, loving and only a bit battered. Has plenty to give and wants to receive in return. Romantic and strong….. Fights with the brain constantly and wants to rule the roost!
