So, I’m wondering, if you’re a liver cell (as opposed to a die-er cell, I like to think) what do you do when the body decides to go for a walk?

I mean does your function change for walking?  If walking is the main mission for the moment, do you have to get on board with the walking directive?

What if the body decides to sleep?  Do you do something different?

I mean, you probably do more or less of what your duty generally requires, but do you actually change functions?

The leg-muscle cell obviously does something different when it’s time for a walk, and maybe even when it’s time for sleep.  On the other hand, though, the leg-muscle cell doesn’t really do much different if the body suddenly needs to filter serious loads of toxins from the blood stream, I suppose.

Maybe, you get my point.  Maybe not.

Anyway, you’re a liver cell.  What do you do when it’s time for the body to write a blog?  You do liver stuff.  Just like you did when it was time to sleep.

Why do you do liver stuff?  You’re a liver cell.  It’s in your DNA.  It’s what you were made to do.

If you don’t do liver stuff, the body can only walk so far, or write so much, or sleep so soundly but you don’t have to walk or write or sleep (but maybe you get a nap when you’re between shifts).  You do liver stuff.

How do you know if you’re a liver cell?  It’s in your DNA.  You think like a liver cell, look a liver cell, smell like a liver cell.  Look in the mirror.  You’re a liver cell.  You don’t even have to know yourself all that well.  You just have to do what you do best.

And do it with gusto.  Lots of gusto.  Much gusto.  That’s the secret.  The secret’s in the gusto.
