Under anesthesia on the operating table

Rushed to Minneapolis and seconds away from going under the knife to repair a detached retina, I think I had a come-to-Jesus moment.

How else can you explain why the only thought in my mind at the time was the interstate billboard we passed en route asking if I was in despair? The smaller second line said, “Jesus is your hope.”

We can hope, I’m thinking. This detached retina surgery is serious stuff. 

Swimmingly delirious under the anesthesia, I swear, the popular Duluth Trading Co. billboard flashed before my bad eye: “Get buck naked,” it said.

Good grief, the two billboards are back-to-back on the interstate, I remembered.

Conflicting messages, I’m thinking.
