This story is a story about you, the person reading this story right this second. You may find this implausible and silly, but please do your best to get over this, because it's actually true. This story is about you.

This story is about you, but the you of many, many years from now. You are very old, and finally nearing your end. You are laying on a hospital bed, with a respirator over your mouth and nose and with various tubes and monitors attached to you, and you are in the later throes of whatever it is that is finally going to kill you. If you try to leave the hospital, you know that you will die somewhere in the hallway. You are laying on your deathbed, and you know it. With your room all to yourself, you sit and reflect.
