Doctor struggling to give me a little bad news alvin January 3, 2019 - 9:21am

Yesterday one of my doctors was struggling to give me a little bit of bad news, fumbling a little over his words and giving me a very lengthy explanation. After a little while I told him listen, I’ve been unconscious seven times, I’ve had three fake heart attacks (allergic angina), and I was once told that I had a 10% chance of dying during an operation. What you’re telling me right now, it’s okay, it’s not that big of a deal. He calmed down a little after that.

Young woman works at Best Buy to talk to her father

Interesting discussion of the day: A young woman who helped me at Best Buy today told me that one reason she works there is so she has something she can talk about with her father (tech stuff).

We talked because talking tells you things

“We talked because talking tells you things, like what you really are thinking about. But sometimes you can’t find what you’re feeling till all the words run out.”

Marry a person you love to talk to

Got this in an email last week, seems appropriate for today: “Marry a person you love to talk to.”
