Right.

Two of my oldest friends are roommates. One of them had her workplace burn down on Monday. The other found out yesterday that her dad was in the hospital on a ventilator. His health care provider managed to collapse his lung when they went in to biopsy the spot they'd seen on his lung during chest x-ray. She hadn't heard about *any* of this.

I may not be making it to sword class tonight, because her dad is in a nursing home in the middle of screaming nowhere, halfway between Flint and Lansing.

Glad I didn't go to the security guard company to fill out paperwork today; it would have taken all day, and I would have missed the call.
