Ode to the Extra Life

No, this is not about EL.

Oh, extra life, how we adore thee. You’re always there to pick us back up when we have fallen. You’re always there to heal our every wound up good as new. You are a stalwart companion and an indispensible element in fighting the good fight even when the chips are down. Oh, extra life, how could we ever have lived (again) without you?

But it is good!
