You ever hear of people who just seem to have one bad thing happen after another? Like, say, a spouse dies and three months later a parent is found to have a four inch mass in their pancreas? What would you say to them? Would you have words of wisdom? Would you be comforting? Attempt to be funny? Go for the dark humor? What would you say?
I said, "Well, geez, it's good that she waited, but NOW? Seriously?"
Followed by, "Man, Nance... you are going to be so strong. I already thought you were strong. When you get through this you're going to be like, the Strongest Woman in the Universe strong."
And, "I'm here. I can be there."
You ever feel like a complete idiot for some of the things you say?
