But today is different. I am staying at home. At least for today, I get to rest my nerves from travelling and give them a break from the subtle roar of the sea fastcraft engine.
Today, I get to watch shows on television as much as I want until my eyes droop. I get to stare all day long at the television without worrying of ward calls or of answering the phone for inquiries which are not for me. Today, I get to lie on my bed all I want, without worrying of being awakened by the nurse for a new admission. Today I can be what I want to be and do what I have been thinking and wanting to do while I am at the confines of hospital duty. Today will be just for myself.
But that won't be for long. Because tomorrow awaits, and I take on my role again of being the doctor-turned-accidental-tourist. But I ain't complaining.
