I finally took an hour and watched the Last Lecture. If you aren't sure what this is, Google and watch as a dying man teaches us all about life. You may have seen him on Oprah, you know, if you were on bed rest for half your pregnancy, and Ellen was a rerun.
Everyone gets something different out of it. Some people probably say, "Oh, I should probably stop being a jerk, in case I die" and some say, "Oh, I should not give up so much when I hit the brick walls" and some say, "Oh, I should try that zero-gravity thing, cos DUUUUDE".
I didn't really walk away saying anything, so I decided that maybe if I blogged about it, something profound would totally just light up the room with its profundity. It hasn't happened yet.
Wasn't there a segment in there about patience?
Yeah, but H- is teething and I'm supposed to put the lasagna in the oven. So maybe I'll think about it while I'm walking him around the house with a Popsicle in his mouth and rethinking our supper options.
Have you watched it yet? Have you at least read the viral e-mail about it? The cliff notes version of the e-mail? Do you even GO on the Internet?
What did you get out of it?
