That day, like most days, I had to teach a class after lunch to a group of people that had just had heart surgery. My job is to talk to them about the importance of moderate exercise during the recovery period, and the need to protect their breastbone so that it heals properly. The day before, there were a few people in the class who did not want to be there, were cranky and wanted to question everything I said and monopolize the class with their stories of how awful it has been for them to have their lives saved.
