when i’m a doctor doing a surgery right before the person goes out under the anesthesia i’m going to say ‘ok pull up the wikihow article’
or right before they go under ask ‘Is this your first operation too?’
Sometimes I forget Julie Andrews isn’t actually royalty.

Peeta’s just pried open an oyster when I hear him give a laugh. “Hey, look at this!” He holds up a glistening, perfect pearl about the size of a pea. Peeta rinses the pearl off in the water and hands it to me. “For you.” I hold it out on my palm and examine its iridescent surface in the sunlight. Yes, I will keep it. For the few remaining hours of my life I will keep it close. This last gift from Peeta. The only one I can really accept. Perhaps it will give me strength in the final moments. “Thanks,” I say, closing my fist around it.
