56. I lost a man I loved dearly to suicide.
Nothing makes me think it's funny. Even now, after years. People who haven't survived a loved ones suicide don't know the flavour of it's special pain.

Part of me wishes they could. Part of me hopes they never do. Those who behave like poopyheads tend to inspire the less noble sentiment.
