I don't care, I'll pay the five bucks.

As some of you know, I've been having a bit of a rough time the past while. Low energy and treatment burnout have been a big challenge lately. Then, today, the ultimate irony - I nearly choked to death on a cough drop.

Can you imagine the obituary?

After a three year battle with cancer, Kirsten succumbed to a Hall's honey-lemon mentholyptus...

I'm laughing now, but we weren't when it looked like it was going to be the Heimlich or 911. Fortunately, the little bugger eventually moved down my airway, but not without a lot of gagging and coughing in between.

Aah, good times...
