A Man in Love...

Post by munsi » Wed Jan 19, 2011 9:00 am

It was terminal, the doctor said. Incurable.

But she was my wife, and I wasn’t the type who blindly accepted fate. If I could save her, I would.

So everything else went on hold as I devoted my intellect single-mindedly to medical research.

I would’ve liked to’ve spent more time comforting her as her health worsened, but the sacrifice would be worthwhile were I to find a cure. Which, in time, I did.

A man in love can accomplish anything.

She’d been dead nearly two decades by that point, of course. But still, finding the cure was sort of cathartic…

Just think of all the other men in love who were saved from tragedy by this mans dedication.

Every cloud has a silver lining, which can be strip-mined and sold on the London exchange.
