How do I look?

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd ask for a mirror.

Medical Advances

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"It's been twenty years and you guys haven't figured how to bring people out of a coma? jeesh"

Dependable Dad

[rebelmouse-image 18357022 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Honestly I'd probably ask where my dad was. If I was alive on life support for 20 years, I assume he would have been paying the bills. He'd be an old man by then. I've no idea if my girlfriend would still be there. She loves me, but she also wants to be a mother more than anything, and she'd probably stop waiting after 5-10 years, which I would not blame her for. But I know my dad would keep me alive until the day he dies, no matter the cost.

Goddamn I love my dad.

Catheter Concerns

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Can you please remove this plastic tube from my....?"

Sci-Fi Fanatic

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Were the new Star Wars movies any good?" ??????

Not Sure My Insurance Covers This

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"How much debt am I in, now that I've been in the hospital for 20 years?"

Cryptocurrency Concerns

[rebelmouse-image 18357023 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"How much are my 10 bitcoins worth?"

Priorities

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"DOCTOR, I NEED PIZZA, COKE, A LAPTOP AND THE WI-FI PASSWORD. STAT!"

Mom and Dad, I Can Explain

[rebelmouse-image 18357024 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Did anyone look at my internet history?"

Figuratively Speaking

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd... hope that I had at least lost some weight on my strict liquid tube feeding diet.

Breaking Down

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

No questions. Just crying. Then after crying for 1 hour straight "where's my mom?"

Call Me Rip Van Winkle

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Did I oversleep again?"

So Embarrassed

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Was I snoring? I would be so embarrassed if I was snoring... Holy sh*t did I fart? Wait don't tell me.... OK tell me...wait no...I farted huh?....ahhhh I hate comas!!!!!!!"

Date Night

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If it's a hot doctor: "How you doing?"

Mr. Clean

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd probably ask for a shower and a razor. I can't imagine they would keep me that clean.

Gotta Go

[rebelmouse-image 18357025 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Bathroom. WHERE IS THE BATHROOM?"

That Took An Unexpected Turn

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"You know, most test subjects come out of stasis horribly malnourished. Congratulations on beating the odds and somehow managing to pack on a few pounds."

Asking for a Friend

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Do Japanese robotic girlfriends exist yet? How much?

Doctor What?

[rebelmouse-image 18357020 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"WHO'S THE CURRENT DOCTOR? ARE BOW TIES STILL COOL? TELL ME!" __

Do You Own a Crossbow?

[rebelmouse-image 18357026 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"What's that door over there with the sign that reads 'DON'T DEAD, OPEN INSIDE'?"

What's that old saying? "Make sure you're always wearing clean underwear in case you're in an accident. What would the medics think."

I'm paraphrasing, but you get it.

That saying can be applied to many aspects of life.

What "surprising" items are hidden in your drawers? Or under you bed?

Or dear Lord... what is on your phone?

We all have ownership over a belonging or six that could cause quite a stir.

Especially if we aren't there to explain it's existence.

I'll be honest, for most of my life I have had exactly zero daily routine.

The chaos was something of a calling card—but not one that was necessarily good for me.

Spoiler alert, I had a raging case of undiagnosed neuroodivergent shenanigans—and in recent years I've been able to get a better handle on being me.

As a result, a daily routine has sort of developed.

Games are a great form of recreation.

They can bring us closer together with friends and family (or drive a wedge between us—looking at you, Mario Party), and provide an excellent way to blow off some steam by ourselves.

Not all games are totally straightforward about how you win them, though. Sometimes you win the game by losing.
