Lani and I were in the living room the other day:
ME: I’m getting discouraged. I can’t eat anything, I can’t smell anything, and pretty soon I’m not going to be able to see anything. This sucks.
LANI: You don’t know that. You can do anything. I bet you don’t lose your sight at all. And you can eat lots of stuff, you’re making all those new recipes–
ME: Oh, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. Are you ever not chipper? Is there ever a time you’re not upbeat and happy? DOES THE CHIPPERNESS NEVER END?
ALASTAIR (on the other side of the living room giving sub-q to our terminal dog): Snerk.
LANI: Okay, FINE. YOU’RE GONNA GO BLIND AND NEVER EAT CHOCOLATE CHIPS AGAIN!
ME: THE HELL I AM. I’M JENNIFER GODDAMN CRUSIE AND I CAN DO ANYTHING!
LANI: Oh. That does work better.
ME: Yeah. I”m not sure what that says about me, though.
ALASTAIR (still on the other side of the living room giving sub-q to our terminal dog): Snerk.
Thank God I have sisters. And Alastair.
