I had an MRI this week (no big deal) and it's true, it's just as scary as it looks. But I surprised myself with how quickly I turned being stuck in a plastic tree log for 20 minutes into a fun game. No one mentions the crazy sounds that happen when you're in there. Each different sound was a steady beat, but kept changing tone and rate. That and the electronic quality of the sound made me feel like I was at a Knife concert, and I'm sure I made the technician laugh more than once trying to sing along with the beat or harmonize with the piercing notes. The whole thing was a bit like this Animal Collective Video.
Anyway, it turns out I can do anything. You can, too.
