it was a frozen pot pie, and you’re supposed to cut into the crust before you put it in the microwave. instead of doing it in a safe way, i held onto the bottom tray, sure that a dinner knife wouldn’t penetrate all the way through. it did, and cut a huge chunk of skin with it.

Fortunately, my friend Katie was around to drive me to the hospital and say with me during my paniced hospital visit.
So after the funeral, during the drive to a polish graveyard in dundalk, some teenage girl tried to cross into our lane, and was getting pretty ornery until my pregnant friend pulled out our funeral tag and shoved it in her face.
