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.

Priorities

"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.

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

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!" __

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.
