ARCATA – Arcata socialite, human spark plug and inveterate do-gooder Debi Farber Bush collapsed yesterday morning at the gym. She's OK, if a little dizzy, after an ambulance ride to Mad River Community Hospital.
Wednesday morning, Debi was visited by Arcata Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sandy Scott, who noticed that her breakfast was untouched.
Overcoming Debi's objections about the carbohydrate-laden meal, Scott force-fed her yogurt as the impatient patient expressed a yearning for egg whites and a sprouted grain muffin.
"You look like Bam Bam," Scott remarked about Debi's pillow-tousled 'do.
"Debi's kind of pathetic today," Farber Bush self-diagnosed. "My world is spinning out of control."
The exact nature of Debi's malady is not yet known, but she is adamant that she must be released by Friday to go on her long-planned, 545-mile AIDS Lifecycle Ride. She's been planning the ride for months.
"I just want to get on my bike and ride," she said. "I have pink tires."
Well-wishers are encouraged to encourage Debi Farber Bush to follow doctors' orders on her Facebook page.
