So the other day i had a 91 y old patient come see me
We chatted about his health and had a great time talking about his life and things he had done
When the time came to leave I got up and walked to the door and turned and held out my hand in the shape of a fist
He looked surprised but reciprocated with a fist bump.
Then he just stood there stunned.
I asked what happened
He started to tear
“No one has ever fist bumped me, I thought I would never get the chance to do this, thank you, you are a good man”
And then he walked out.
I was somewhat speechless
I had always assumed that everyone knew what a fist bump was…..
I had always assumed.
Thats the key that i learned in that moment
One can never assume, and also it is never too late to experience anything
I love you
