One of the most fun things that I have found in the 7 months of being married is the silly late night conversations. They are the ones that stem from one funny comment that then takes on a life of its own. Last night, we had one that started from a combination of my ailing shoulder and her upcoming trip to NY city. The following is a paraphrased and slightly abridged conversation:
Me: If my shoulder still hurts next week, then I will go to the doctor.
Wife: So you're going to go on Monday?
Me: No, I said next week meaning Thursday or Friday after you've left for NY.
Wife: What if you find out that it's cancer and you've only got four days to live. I would feel guilty that I left you to go to NY for vacation. (My own form of hypochondriacism is to initially think that everything is cancer. The thought typically last for a few minutes. Then, I move on to more reasonable illnesses.)
Me: I would leave you a note saying that you shouldn't feel guilty. No one ever sees the onset of rotator cuff cancer. In fact, the doctors themselves would say that this is the first case of RCC that they have ever seen and that the progression was faster then they could ever imagine. Just dumb luck...there is noting you can do.
Wife: What heroic thing would you do with only four days left to live?
Me: I wouldn't do anything heroic. I would just take off work and play video games.
Me: If I'm going to be the first ever death from rotator cuff cancer then I think that's a big enough thing on which to go out. At that point I would just want to relax and enjoy the final days. On the upside, I might be able to convince them to name the disease after me. That would be a fairly good legacy. Man, people would hate having to call it the Farquharson disease.
Wife: That's O.k. Gerhig can be a tricky name too. Besides, I'm pretty sure that you're not going to die from RCC.
Me: You're probably right. But, it would be kind of cool in a weird sort of way.
After this bizarre yet humorous conversation, we went to sleep so that we could be well rested for our trip to Austin this afternoon. The great thing about our trip is that they have stopped construction on 35 this weekend because of the traffic from the Texas-OU game. Also, we will be traveling opposite of the traffic. Were heading down to see Rilo Kiley on Sunday night at Stubbs. It should make for a pretty good show, but I am really just as excited about stopping in West for my Koloches. :)
