Shared Observances

I had lunch with Dick Cheney in his hospital room. I asked him how he was feeling after receiving the heart transplant. He said that he was sore.

No one said anything for a moment. Pain makes everyone feel awkward.

So we turned on the TV in the hospital room. The old detective show Ironsides was on. That’s the one where Raymond Burr played a handicapped sleuth in a wheel chair.

I said it was amazing what some people can do amidst the obstacles life gives them.

Dick Cheney said he felt the same way when he watched Gilligan’s Island.
