I wish my first step to borghood was something cooler, like a laser eye, but nevertheless I’m extremely thankful to the men and women of science, and engineering, that challenged nature and decided that humans are repairable. I’m no longer 100% organic, what you see in the picture is inside of me, part of me. It’s fixing a hernia I had.
For a few hours I couldn’t move. The joy I got afterwards when I was finally able to eat soup by myself or walk around was immense. Pure happiness at the realization of how much I normally have.
I wish this perspective on life would stay with me, but I know that in two weeks I’ll be complaining about Twitter being down or some other non-issue as if it was about life and death. Not unlike all the other spoiled healthy people.
