Cow and Boy Classics by Mark Leiknes for January 22, 2021
"Cow, we're good friends, right? Like if I ever needed a kidney..." "Hold up, you need a kidney?" "No, I'm just saying that from a friend standpoint, you'd loan me one of your kidneys if I needed it. We're that close of friends." "Loan it? Like I'd get it back? Um, I'm pretty sure my kidneys wouldn't work in a human. Gotta be like the size of your head or something." "No, you're missing my point, it's hypothetical...I'm saying that we're good enough friends that you would sacrifice part of yourself so that I might live. Even though it could affect your own health." "Is there a way or a doctor to test my kidneys beforehand to see if one is better than the other? I'd like to keep the good one, if it's all the same to you." "I mean they are my kidneys. I should at least be able to choose which one I donate. Question: Do I have to donate the whole kidney at once?" "What about half a kidney? Better than nothin', I say." "Forget it."
