View From the Hospital Room

The view through the window from her bedside is fantastic.


“Wow, what a fabulous view of Boston!”


I sound like a tourist that just arrived here for a weekend visit.


“I don’t care! I want to go home! Who cares about the view here!”


She is upset. Nobody likes to be ill and to stay in the hospital.


Even if it has a nice view from the window.
