did you cry? or weep? or get misty-eyed? or have any other salty excretions from any iris related body parts?
i felt like pouring a beer and raising it to the guy....
Oh crap james, I thinnnk I've ruinnnned my keyboard...the nnnn is sticking because that's where all the tears rannn! Give me a minnute....Ok - better now. WOW - you know what really hit me with that. One of my favourite little rascals in the world is back in hospital, sick as a dog with his Cystic Fibrosis. He uses the same oxygen delivery system as this man. And I just kept thinking how much I'd like my little friend to grow to be a cool old guy - but he won't. Like most of us, he can't be fixed. And he's a little scared. But he keeps going as best he can: laughing, pushing people's buttons, messing with the medical residents...he'd crack up watching old people sing Cold play.I hope I can keep going with as much courage, class and "chutzpah" as these folks - old or young.
