1 While on pain meds you have some really strange dreams. How strange? Remember Green Lantern, the early sixties superhero in an emerald and black costume wielding a magical Power Ring as a weapon? His alter ego was human test pilot Hal Jordan. As a member of the intergalactic Green Lantern Corps Hal protected Earth and other planets in his sector. GL was nearly invincible against everything except the color yellow. He was also a member of the group known as the Justice League of America.
I did dream of more than superheroes though. There were student’s I’ve had, schools where I’ve taught, theatre that I’ve done and not to mention a whole lot of s#&t that just made no sense at all.

3 Hospital food tastes like crap, especially the broth and the jello. Even the fruit juices.
4 Your meds will be screwed up at least once. Count on it.
5 The reading material and music you take will never get used. Don’t even pack it.
6 During your hospital stay there will be some things that you’ll never do gracefully or with any degree of dignity whatsoever. I just ain’t gonna happen, so live with it doood.
7 Older Black women still sing as they go about their work. I’d missed that.
