"If you were going to live as if you only had one year to live, what would you do?"
I am reading "These Dreams" by Barbara Chepaitis, and this question is posed... not you only *have* a year to live, but if you were going to live *as if* you only had a year to live...
And I'm wondering to myself, what would I do? And so, as I wonder, I thought to wonder aloud to all of you... what would you do?
Miranda, from Sex and the City
"We're both afraid we're going to kill the baby, that's a given. But we agreed that this week on Monday through Friday I would try not to kill him, and on Saturday and Sunday *you* would try not to kill him."
I couldn't breathe, I was laughing so hard. You see, the most horrifying, terrifying thing about parenting is doing something wrong. Every parent I've ever spoken to walks by their infant's crib and checks to see if they are breathing. Parenting is scary. But I've never heard it said so succinctly as Miranda made it. And its SO hard to eat dinner when laughing like that.
"Sometimes when a person insists on putting a noose around their neck you just have to see if they find a branch to hang it from."
Have you ever had an experience like this? Thought this? Go. Think. Discuss.
