I just found out that one of my close friends SR has a ruptured appendix and is about to undergo an emergency appendectomy. I just talked to her half an hour ago while she was waiting for her ride to the hospital.
At first I was freaked out because of course I’m very worried about her, but now I can’t help pondering how convenient it would be to have a ruptured appendix myself. I’m not kidding, think about it. I’d have a surefire excuse for not having to go to work anymore, plus think of all that extra time I’d have to study for the bar. I even googled how long the recovery period from an appendectomy is, and apparently it’s a few days to a few weeks depending on the severity of the ruptured appendix. I could totally study a lot more if I was confined to bed like that.
I’m so jealous of SR right now. God, I’m pathetic.
