One day, Kurt said that we should form a band with this other dude, Dave, whose dad was a cardiac surgeon.
“We could,” he suggested, “call ourselves, ‘Sons of Surgeons.'”
It only recently occurred to me that our fathers regularly cut people with surgical blades. My father sawed and drilled bones while replacing joints with hi-tech titanium replicas.
Kurt’s father sutured brains.
I’m sure that our conscious or unconscious awareness of the work our fathers did had no influence whatsoever on our life choices.
