"Take out appendix"
In the following paragraph, what does it mean to "take out your appendix"?
This is boring but important, for debt is a cosmic or "big picture" lesson. What about other forms of debt, like credit cards? I got my first card when I was in basic training in the Army Medical Corps. (I actually know how to take out your appendix.)
I have no idea what it means in the context-just guess it might attract their attention.
Please let me know what it is exactly.
Thank you so much.
