as the icing on that shitcake, I was rather shocked yesterday when I was in the thrift store and I found all the participation trophies for hockey and swim for the teammate of my kids who committed suicide on Memorial Day. Especially as there has been a series of articles about teen suicide in the local news this week and his name has been heavily featured. I'm not shocked the family cleared them out. I'm just kind of surprised the easily removable name plaque wasn't removed by someone before they were put out for sale at 50 each :/

Did you point them out to the shop owner/manager? That could seriously mess up a teen who knew him and happened to come shopping.

of course. There was only a semi manager on duty. She said "well perhaps people might like to buy them to remember him" and as she saw my face when she said that..... changed it to "I'll pass it on to the next level..... This is the store that benefits local schools and the whole fam has been pretty involved at some point, they know us well. Pologirl worked there as her summer job this year. Today was her last day.

I assumed they didn't realize and would be glad to know. I was a little taken aback by her initial reaction, but then pologirl and I discussed her a little and had separately reached the conclusion that she's a bit odd.

Day before yesterday my cousin's husband (who has been diagnosed w/stage 4 something-oma) got a headache about bedtime. At 3am he woke her up to tell not to worry about it, but he was going to the ER, or UrgentCare-type-place.

Long story short he wound up at Vanderbilt University hospital. The cancer made it to his brain.

They gave him 48 hrs.

He's 45.

Fuck cancer.

Sometimes I wonder if I'd want to know early and battle it to the end, or go along fat dumb and happy till the doctors say it's too late, you've got six weeks.
