They might be the last person you see and yet you probably don’t know much more then their name. Those in surgical gloves will be cutting you open but how open are they with you before the knife starts a cutting. Maybe you don’t want to get to personal because who wants to bring up a bad memory just before this person can shut down all of yours but isn’t it good to know a bit more about this “wonderful individual” to make sure they cut the bad side only ? Tell them a joke or compliment them on the way that surgical mask looks I don’t know all I know is this is the one time you don’t want them to feel the list bit cut. Tell them about your grand plan to help insure doctors get treated fairly after of course this surgery. For life is short so make sure the surgeon doesn’t want to make it shorter.
