Look at him, with his smug little face.
Well, sir. I believe you are wrong.
As an ICU Nurse, I don't deny that death is certain. I have seen many people post-pone it. I have seen families avoid it. I have seen countless co-workers battle it.
However, even if we "keep 'em alive until 7:45." it will catch up to you eventually.
I also don't deny that taxes are certain. Although, I'm starting to see a bit more grey area on this one. My husband is an accountant attempting to get a job as a tax auditor. You'd think this would incline me to boast the veracity of Benny's certainties, however... My husband forgot to file his own taxes a few years ago...
So many people advised against filing back-taxes...
I'm looking at you H&R Block.
So where exactly do I find fault with Mr. Franklin?
He's so sure that nothing else can be certain.
I posit another theory.
Now, while Goodreads attributes this quote to Hilary Clinton most other sources credit EH Carr.
It also happens to be the title of an article about Coronary Bypass trends published in 1998.
Unfortunately, I am not going to address any of those subjects in this post. Today.
Today I am going to talk about some changes.
Mostly, how I've changed.
I have had a lot of things shift on me. Not, terribly recently, but recent enough. I hope to resume our little one-sided chats, however. There will appear to be some continuity issues for the purists.
I am back, and because of my assertion that change is also certain, be aware that changes have occurred.
The important ones:
I have three cats (Pistachio, Rydia, Cricket)
I am married to an accountant (technically, still a student)
I work in Neurotrauma ICU (with backgrounds in ER, Cardiovascular ICU and Education)
