I have spent more time in hospitals than someone who is young and healthy ought to. When I was seventeen, my best friend was paralyzed in an athletic accident and a close family member was diagnosed with cancer. (My father died many years ago, though I was too young to remember those hospital visits.) Because I was a pretentious teenager I even recorded a concept album about hospitals for a high-school English project. And when I think about hospitals, I always think about hospital food.
