The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

At the Hospital


Took a friend to the hospital yesterday for an operation.  This sign greeted us at admissions.


Since I was taking an interest in reading it, I was asked if I had been there. 
 "You couldn't pay me enough to go there.  Even if you include free airline tickets, accommodations and all meals provided."  They laughed and left me alone after that.
Why would I even consider?

  1. I wonder why they don't call the ebola disease or is this about something else we don't know yet?

  3. such a funny story, John. like your answer :) there's a sign by my doc's check-in point as well. wondering why they haven't posted about TB and mumps and measles, too. Yes, I'm being a smart-ass....but these are more likely to hit the average person than Ebola....sheesh.

  4. Hmmmm. my reaction might be the same. I've decided that I'm done going to a different continent. There is much to see here in the states.
