I recently found out a good friend has leukemia and has been given 14 months to live.
In ruminating about this on a late night walk with Red, I thought to myself, “I really should send a Get Well card.”
Of course a split second later I realized, she wasn’t going to get well.
I pondered Hallmark’s lack of a “Happy Dying” card section.
And my own stupidity.
Then I laughed.
Which was okay.
As Shaw once said,
Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
