You take it for granted that you can swallow food without pain in your throat. Other things you take for granted: roof over your head, arms and legs that work fine, food on the table, your father always in his chair tackling his crossword puzzles, a sunny day, a decent set of clothes, your friend on the other end of the phone line, this girl who adores you, the cheerful guard who greets you by first name every morning, the ocassional cookie from the quiet girl you never thought to really thank. Now, imagine these are all gone now. Poof.
