Rick did me a favor... He decided that just sitting there in his hospital bed watching TV wasn't productive and so he decided to get some chores done.
I'd been there the night before, and since I always take some work to do with me, I had made a night of bill paying. Yes, I'm a lot of fun when I come to visit you in the hospital. But anyway, I didn't finish my task and I'd left behind some bills that needed paying the night before ... and Rick found them. And he decided to help.
I'm not sure what was on TV that caught his attention... or if he was just dreaming about thunder... but I arrived to this the next day.
