You remember that episode of the Twilight Zone where the guy survives a nuclear bomb, wakes up and realizes that there are no more people on the planet?
He he now has all the time in the world and access to all the books? And he's so excited about being able to read? And he sorts them and stacks them and prepares for a life long reading frenzy. And then right at the end he sits down, picks up a book and his glasses break?
That is pretty much me with finding a comfortable reading position four days after surgery.
