BITTERSWEET OPUS

I hate that the only time my family is together is when someone is in the hospital.

----

The Sister was kicking some gnarly abdomen pains that had her end up in an emergency room very early this morning. Hours later, a surgery. Hours later, she's on her way home. It's a Christmas miracle.

I've been awake for more than 35 hours.

The no-sleep dementia kicked in around three hours ago, when a very old lady in a neighboring hospital room started yapping about how much she hates Barack Obama. I couldn't help but eavesdrop.

"Damn democrat -- going to raise our taxes. A lot."

She is in a hospital room. Complaining about taxes.

The only tax she should even remotely be thinking of is the estate tax. Too early?

Post-surgery-The Sister was upset at me this afternoon because she was sore, and I, in hindsight, an asshole, didn't skip a beat to make her laugh. I just want to die knowing that I made someone laugh so hard that it made them hurt.

Hugo Hospital Highlight:
HUGO: Don't fall asleep.

THE SISTER: Why?

HUGO: They put some morphine in your ivy thingie. If you go to sleep, there's a good chance you won't wake up.

THE SISTER: OH MY GOD ARE YOU SERIOUS?????????
And scene;

Hospitals are fucking gay, man.
