so i recently had a family member die. BEFORE YOU START TYPING YOUR SYMPATHIES please keep reading. again, this last week i've been thinking about death. you see, i don't mourn. sure, wherever we go from here, death is always tragic. i don't care if one goes peacefully, or the worst pain, at 9 or 90. death sucks.
for years though, i've felt more sympathetic pain for my friends and family than over my own loss.
also to be fair, 'family member' may be off accoding to some. she is my cousins' grandma. i was closer to her than one of my actual grandmothers though. don't really expect tons of responses to this now, so anyone interested in discussing the finer points of 'what makes a family' can feel free to start their own in the forum here, or come visit me in your pants
