Alex Wallbanger of Somerset, Kentucky says that if it hadn't been for the old rotary telephone he would have been in a mess.
After his wife, Nuggy, had went to work on the night shift and after they had had some fun in bed, Alex had gone to sleep.
He told people at the Emergency Room in London Hospital that when he woke up at three in the morning, he knew something was wrong.
He said that a car came by and its headlights came through the curtains and he realized that "I was still up after the big event!"
So he began counting back from when Nuggy left for the night shift and sure enough, it had been over five hours later and "Big Wallbanger" was still setting up watching the infomercials.
"Oh, it's funny now but I was shaking so bad that I couldn't dial the hospital until I remembered our old rotary telephone that we had never thrown away. I had to get Big Wallbanger to dial the number. He did great and did the whole number, not just 911."
Alex then got half way dressed and drove to the Emergency Room where they finally got him most of the way down.
"I should have called an ambulance but what was I going to tell the neighbors? One thing for sure, I'll keep that telephone in a safe place and I'll never take a double dose of Levitra again!"
