Reasons to look forward to a hospital stay.

1. The possibility of morphine.

2. A plentiful supply of warm blankets.

3. The blissful combination of morphine and warm blankets.

4. Being able to overhear very strange conversations.

5. Not being held responsible for anything strange that you might say.

6. Not being expected to remember anything strange that you might have said.

Oh the interesting people you can meet

Oh the interesting things you can hear, smell, taste, and see

Don't forget all the jello and boullion you can eat (or drink)

and the feeling of being high on pain medication, saying something, and as you hear it coming out of your mouth, you know that it is weird and embarrassing.

For example "I'm not FX 5" while half asleep, high on pain meds, and listening to a commercial for the show while half asleep. Everyone in the room saying 'um... what?' Your only defense is to pretend you were talking in your sleep.
