Eating Feelings

The food on the coffee table looks appropriately ransacked, while on TV the Olympics wind down into a confused heap with occasional music. We're just chatting about my upcoming radiation treatments, now, and I confess to having gotten freaked out a little thinking about the whole thing.

"Katie went to do something, and I was reading about the singer from the Tragically Hip's inoperable brain cancer that responded well to radiation, and I thought, 'Oh, I'm doing that, I should look up what it does,' and I realized that it kind of scared me a little," I say over strains of "The Girl From Ipanema."

"You need your person and snacks if you're going to do stuff like that," Katie says sternly.
