Feel like Short-changed

  "Finn didn't even seem to care that he was dying," I said. And it was true. Finn was as calm as ever right up to the very last time I saw him.

  "Don't you know? That's the secret. If you always make sure you're exactly the person you hoped to be, if you always make sure you know only the very best person, then you won't care if you die tomorrow."

  "That doesn't make any sense. If you were so happy, then you'd want to stay alive, wouldn't you? You'd want to be alive forever, so you could keep being happy" I reached over and tapped my ash into a pretty dish that Toby was using for an ashtray.

  "No, no. It's the most unhappy people who want to stay alive, because they think they haven't done everything they want to do. They think they haven't had enough time. They feel like they've been short-changed."

  Toby flattened both his hands and mimed pressing them up against a window. "Wax on, wax off," he said, moving one hand at a time a flat arc. "You're turning me into Mr. Miyagi with all this talk. I feel like I'm in The Karate Kid."
