(scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
The first step is clearly to not panic. Also a bad idea: Replaying the argument in your head over and over again, memorizing all the nuances and the ways in which logic took a backseat to emotion. Run to the car. Drive like the wind to the hospital. Find out where he’s located, his status, possibly see his family. Hug his weeping mother and shake the hand of his father who’s trying desperately to hold back tears.
Then walk into the room and up to the bed that holds his broken body, hearing nothing but the electronic beep that now signifies his life. Take his hand, bend down close to his ear, and whisper, ‘You were wrong.’
Such is my disdain for this question.
