Today’s WordPress writing prompt- Surreal
Nothing mattered. Eating didn’t matter. Showering didn’t matter. Sleep didn’t matter.
Everything seemed like it was a million miles away. My home. My job. The 2016 Presidential Election.
“Your husband has been transferred to the SICU.”
“Your husband might not survive this surgery.”
“Your husband’s heart will stop beating today.”
“Your husband is clinically dead.”
“Let’s look at the caskets we offer.”
The moment you give your credit card to the man at the cemetery to buy your second piece of property.
The moment you have to check the widow box on the marital status question on medical forms.
The moment you have to write deceased next to the father’s name on your child’s forms for school.
Those moments when life doesn’t feel real.
