George:
I
need you
to film my
tonsillectomy.
I know, I know: There will be blood.
It’s OK for 6-foot-5 men
to faint, George. Shame comes
only from
failing
to
try.
We
don’t
want them
to be scared,
right? They’ll see me calm,
a sweatered friend in a gas mask.
And you’ll be at peace, too, in love
with that camera.
Please: Just think
about
the
kids.
