On the Keith Olberman show, he always used to end his show with some count: "542 days since the former president declared victory in Iraq. Good night and good luck." I wondered when he would stop counting. And the answer seems to be, he never stops counting somehting, he just changes what he counts.
I wonder how it will be with me and celiac. Will it be until I finally get that this is forever, and what's the point in counting that? Will it be when I come up with something else to count?
I only watch the end of Keith's show so that I can watch the opener to Rachel Maddow anyway. She's not a counter.
