Another thing I thought of one if my old teachers had a stroke a few years back. What did he do? Take a couple months of and went back to work. He's STILL teaching, I honestly think he'll die teaching every year its "at the end of the year I'll retire" and he never does, he's been saying this since I was in grade seven, now I'm two years out of high school.
