First, as a candidate for AD, I have 2 choices.
1--be afraid, cry, feel sorry for myself, trouble other people ( 20 year in advance )
2--laugh, joke, worry as less/little as possible, hope they find better medication than the brown nuggets we have now, hope for a cure or something nearly as good as a cure for our Kids and friends who are still young, and who are at risk as much as you and me, but still don't know it.
But yes, maybe some people try to put their fear to rest by joking about it.
I know the frustrations already, and this is just the kind of thing I wish to my worst enemies, instead of the death penalty .
Oh yes, let me go back to the kitchen. I think I was pealing potatoes.
