and, internet? it's "bawling", not "balling"
I'm finally reading One Day. It had been on my PBS wish list for months, and I finally scored a copy.

I was about 50 pages or so in, and I didn't think I was all that invested, but then Dexter forgot to mail the letter asking Emma to visit him in India and I was like ARE YOU KIDDING ME????

So I guess I'm a little more invested than I thought.

Saturday when I was supposed to be watching football, I read Love is a Mix Tape, which had me in tears. I guess I have this thing about young widowers... I bawled all the way through How to Talk to a Widower, start to finish, no lie. D saw me wiping my face and was like "wth is wrong with you?" and told me to stop reading such sad books. Do guys not get that we girls like a good cathartic cry now and then?

Cathartic cries are the best kind. Maybe that's what I need....a really good wailing session. Hmm.

I can't think about young widowers without thinking about my friend's brother. He's only like...35 or 36...and his wife passed away two weeks after having a their baby. So, all of those kinda books and movies seem not too far off now.

Yeah, it can freak you out when it happens to someone you know. D's best friend's sister died a few years ago, leaving behind her husband and young son, and it puts things in a "wow, that could happen to us" kind of mind.

Even so, I like reading stories about that. I don't know why.
