At first, I was thinking, "This is actually sort of sad", but when the person in the next stall came in, I died XD. Can't believe I didn't see it coming, lol.

"How can a fish funeral be hilarious" was not a mystery to me. Honestly I was surprised at the fact that they kept it totally solemn until the last moment.

I totally understand this. When I was in the hospital(click on my name to read the story) I got lots of roses. (I love pink/white roses) but I was there so long that they started to die. I got emotionally attached to a blueish pink rose. It died and I was devastated. I was so hoped up on pain meds that I literally thought that since the rose died, the "fairy would stop visiting and not leave me any cookies... "
