"When you get those rare moments of clarity, those flashes when the universe makes sense, you try desperately to hold on to them. They are the life boats for the darker times, when the vastness of it all, the incomprehensible nature of life is completely illusive. So the question becomes, or should have been all a long... What would you do if you knew you only had one day, or one week, or one month to live. What life boat would you grab on to? What secret would you tell? What band would you see? What person would you declare your love to? What wish would you fulfill? What exotic locale would you fly to for coffee? What book would you write?"

Doctors office

Doctor: "hello, how are you?"

Me: .....what am I supposed to say? Is this a trick question? The standard American response is "good" but I'm not good- and you-my doctor- obviously knows that or else I wouldn't be in your office. Believe it or not I don't come down to your office because I'm good. I always want to blurt out "good" even if I am in some horrible state because that's whats normal but i feel If I said good- they would look at me funny and be like- ok why are you here? But if I say how I truly feel- "um...miserable" then they also just look at me funny.

I think I think too much into things. Yeah.
