172 vs. 40

Before each shower, I apply a plastic film over my port-a-cath, to keep water out of the dressing. The nursing agency ships them to me. They have sticky borders that adhere to your skin after you peel off the strips of waxy paper. It's not easy to do to yourself if you are a pathetic cripple like I am. The other day, I counted the seconds in my head: 172. Almost three minutes. The next day, I asked my kind wife to do it for me, and I counted: 40 seconds.
