While You Were Sleeping
We were fresh. We hadn’t known each other long. He hadn’t told his family about me yet. I made it to the hospital before his mother and brother did. I had told the nurses I was his girlfriend partly so they would let me in (most hospitals aren’t big on visitors in the critical care unit) because he and I hadn’t yet had “the talk.” I was a stranger to them. Some strange girl sitting by his side surrounded by machines and tubes.
Later that first weekend they confessed to thinking I might be pulling a “While You Were Sleeping” and cyber stalking me to make sure he and I actually had a connection.
Guess what’s on tv right now.
