Top Five Awesome Things About My Recent Surgery

5. The anesthesiologist actually laughed at my Walking Dead jokes.

2. Hospital swag! Seriously — they sent me home with a tub full of cool stuff, including this charming contraption:


This thing is all about making you suck.

Who knew there’d be prizes? Nobody told me about the prizes! Why didn’t anyone tell me about that?

About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15+ years), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've recently finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
