Since 2020 is basically Murphy’s Law every month, what is the most improbable thing that you have personally witnessed?
Ed ecco le risposte:
So three years ago I bought this little succulent and forgot to water for almost two years. I’m not exaggerating. It was dead. But I decided to give it a chance. Spent all of last year nursing it back to life and it was beautiful and it grew and grew.
Then corona happens and since my plant lives at my office I decided to give it a little extra water than normal and then time passed. Well. When I returned it had fucking died. From overwatering. Bish what. So I removed all the soil and let it dry out completely. It was so pathetic to look at.
A few weeks ago I decided to put it in water and see if something would happen. Well wouldn’t you know. That little shit is back in business and growing even faster than before. This plant is a total rollercoaster. It’s nothing special. It fits in my palm. Tiny plant. I keep it in an egg cup. It’s completely ridiculous to look at and when I look up the species it’s definitely not supposed to look as ugly as it does. But I love this stupid little plant. I will never give up on it. Not at this point. I will keep it alive for as long as possible because it’s a fighter. None of my other succulents have shown the same level of resilience.
Right as Covid started getting extremely bad in the US, my grandfather was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
Ironic, I know. Finding out you’re immunocompromised during the global peak of a horrific disease that attacks the exact organs where your cancer is located. But we figured if we kept him indoors and away from potential spread of the disease, he wouldn’t catch it.
He caught it.
Weeks in the hospital passed without contact, and I genuinely thought that my last words with him, my final moments, were to be a text message that simply said, “I don’t know what’s happening, but I love you so much.”
He was placed on a ventilator, and we all knew what that meant. He wasn’t coming off of it.
Exactly one week later, I get an incoming FaceTime from my grandma. She hands the phone to someone. It’s my grandpa. He looks more tired and weak than I have ever seen anyone look in their entire life. He’s missing a tooth, has grown a full beard, and can barely talk, but he’s in the car with my dad, who is bringing him home.
To this day, I will never fully be able to comprehend just how lucky I am to still have him here.
I saw him (through a window in his house) a few days ago, and he is as full of life as he was before everything happened. I love him so much.

My best friend has been diagnosed with an extremely rare skin disease that usually only affects middle aged men. He is 17. He has most of the rare and dangerous subtypes than can cause things like skin deformation and possibly blindness.
In addition to this, his heart recently stopped for several minutes and had to be rececutated. The way he described it to me sounds like a heart attack.
