"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?"

(at work): Patient is 80+ with really nice Dell laptop in bed with her, she is ferociously busy on it.
Me, stopping by: Looks like you're having fun! I can imagine hospital stays can be pretty boring, its nice that you have that to keep you busy. *smile*
Patient: Oh, no! It's not that you guys are boring! Its just that....if I hadn't brought my laptop, my farmville crops would have withered while I was here! *horrified look*.
I couldn't stop laughing. After I left the room, of course. :-)
