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.
