I think it is funny how we perceive things. Our own experiences always seem a little less exciting, less nice. Which is weird, because it isn't necessarily true.
For example. .. Today my Grandfather had minor surgery. I had to go the hospital to pick up some Silver Nitrate and decided that it would be be a good idea to stop in and say hello. I have spent quite a bit of time in various hospitals as a patient. The one my Grandpa is in is NICE.
For a fleeting moment I found myself wishing I could stay in that hospital. What?! Who wants to stay in hospital?
Everything is relative.
Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is that it is only a matter of time untill I "get" to stay there. Got to love being the runt of the family.
