Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear. -

The first time I heard this story, I reassured the person you had told it to that it was a tall tale. But last night an eyewitness confirmed that you didn't break your foot slipping down a flight of stairs as you had told us. You jumped out of a third story window after your friend died. This ups to 3 the number of times I know you were near death. I'm starting to think we were lucky to have you around this long.
