Back in 2015 when I was headed into surgery, I spent 15 minutes talking with the anesthesiologist as he tapped into my arm and sewed things in place for a long day. He asked me what I was thinking about, and I said, "I am thinking about how big of a boat I should buy if this surgery is a success?" He said, "oh a boat can get expensive." I said yes, there is an old joke that, "if it floats, flies or fornicates it is cheaper to rent than own!" We both laughed. I mentioned where my parents lived in Florida, and he said, he had been to the War Birds Airshow several times. Turns out he has a World War II T-6 trainer and flies airshows as a hobby, talk about expensive. Shortly after that he said, "I am going to give you something to help you relax," I woke up 26 hours later.
1: Have you ever wanted to own a boat?
2: Would you fly in a single engine aircraft?
3: Have you flown in a helicopter?
4: Would you ever pay for sex? (I don't expect fully honest answers on this one.)
5: If you got a new lease on life, what would you reward yourself with?
1: Have you ever wanted to own a boat? Oh, for years, I never have.
2: Would you fly in a single engine aircraft? In a heartbeat, I miss it.
3: Have you flown in a helicopter? Twice, and I will again.
4: Would you ever pay for sex? (I don't expect fully honest answers on this one.) I was talking with a friend about 30 years ago, she was complaining about how hard it was to find a job, I quipped that she could always work the OBT (the prostitution district in Orlando.) She responded, "with what men expected when I was giving it away, I'd hate think what they would want if they were paying for it."
5: If you got a new lease on life, what would you reward yourself with? I ended up with a convertible, instead of a boat.
