Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other

A six word story:

Anxiety now, chest cut next… LIVE.

How perfect that I fall victim to a writing prompt via wordpress. The irony is that I assign such work almost daily to my students.

More and more, I’ve been wishing that my surgery date was sooner. More irony. Previously I wished it away into the distant future. Now, i feel that the anxiety leading up to it must be worse than the surgery itself. The last part of the six word story is “LIVE“. I just want to put this behind me so I can get on with life. I am very excited about life ‘on the other side’. I plan on livin’.

Which leads me to a relevant lesson taught to me by a Bruce Lee JPG (click pic to read).

then die...

then die…
