Day 26 — I would break the law to save a loved one if…
…it was necessary.
On first glance, you might think the answer would be: no matter what.
But I’m a bit rigid when it comes to rules. You can choose to break them and I won’t judge you for it – but my choice is to not break them. I will pay my court fees on time; I will not
get caught sending text while driving; I will tie my shoes when walking down the street; I won’t hunt camels; I will pay the meter when parking my elephant; refrain from oral sex in Califor – – – er, like I said…if it’s necessary.
Day 24 — Given the choice between having to live the rest of my life without my voice, or living the rest of my life without the ability to hear, I would choose…
…to give up hearing.
Being blind would alter my world too completely.
To never hear a sound is unthinkable to me. But to never see a loved one’s face, Analaigh’s goofy grin, or Rose’s tongue in overdrive would be unbearable. I could not, would not, give up climbing. In many ways, it gave me back my life or gave me my first taste of a happy, fulfilled one and losing that would be a tragedy. As my darling Bonnie sings, “I will not be broken” but, please, stay hypothetical.
