A rhetorical question of… “If you were stranded on a deserted island, what two things would you want?” was posed to me recently.
I said, “Can it be anything? You probably don’t want to hear my answer.”
“Yes, it can be anything. Yes, we do want to hear.”
“Are you sure.”
“I’d like my husband back healthy and cancer free.”
If John were back and healthy, I don’t think there is anything we could have conquered. For one, with John around, I could make the worst of a bad situation. Secondly, John had probably seen all of the episodes of “Survivorman” & “Man vs Wild” on the Discovery channel! That would give us a good start. lol John was a very resourceful and intelligent firefighter. For those of you who know good firefighters… they are expert problems solvers and have seen just about everything if they’ve been around long enough… blood… guts… metal twisted in myriads of ways… detached limbs… you name it… they’ve dealt with it… If the two of us were stranded on a deserted island… it wouldn’t be long before the three of us would be together as a family.
Bottom line… don’t ask if you don’t want to hear my answer. I gave the opportunity to opt out. Take the easy out… you’ll feel better and have a better day…
