"I chose not to be a nurse."
"But you’re good at it. And, if you can save a life, I’m sorry Jane, but I don’t see how you can just choose to ignore it."
"I don’t feel comfortable leaving a place, leaving people like Diana and Mary and—"
"Jane, arts and crafts is not a substitute for giving someone a second chance at life."
Everyone in the comments is talking about Rochy’s reaction to it but I’m just imagining Mary in the next room watching it from some kind of yoga pose, falling over and immediately running to the next room to teach her big brother a thing or two.
In summary: my heart’s broken, and I want to kill a man
Possibly just sit him down and explain to him what feelings are. And that other people have them. And not to dismiss other people’s passions because you have your own.
Or just smack him upside the head, that works too.
One day Jane will be proposed to and it wont be fucking terrible.
In other news,
Jane has had the worst luck with proposals.
“Surprise! I am getting married. I love Blanche so much. So much. I mean you. When I said Blanche I meant you. I love you so much. It was a metaphor. I still have the ring though. Seems like a waste not to get hitched. But I’m still married. So we can’t get married for realsies. But we can play house and pretend.”
“Surprise! You know how you wanted to make a difference to the lives of underprivileged kids in Vancouver via an arts and crafts program? How about instead coming to India with me and being a nurse, even though you don’t want to be a nurse. Oh, and we can get married. Otherwise you won’t actually be placed near me, and it’s too dangerous for you to be on your own. Seems like a waste not to get hitched. But I don’t want to like… be actually married to you. Yuck. It’s just you’ve already got the training.”
WELL. WOW. I DIDN’T THINK THEY’D ACTUALLY DO IT BUT THEY DID IT SO WELL AND NOW I’M ALL SHIVERY WOW.
