Don’t count on tomorrow

“It’s her dying wish,” Jack pointed out.

“She’s not dying,” I said.

“She’s probably not dying.”

“We’re all probably not dying. You could get hit by a bus tomorrow.”

I very much appreciate this sentiment. One reason is for the practical thought that you never know how much time you (or someone else) might have left, so don’t waste it. Also for the strangely blunt way of cheering him up in this scene. It’s not exactly kind sugary words of comfort, but in a way the harsh realism in the tone here is maybe more comforting because it’s more believable.
