How To HAVE A HAPPY DEATH

When it’s gone–it’s gone.

Nobody can prove they deserve more (yet we try…).

We’re all just living on borrowed time, anyway.

So why not be happy? 🙂

A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students: ‘Human beings are the only animals that stutter,’ she says.

A little girl raises her hand. ‘I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.’

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories can become, asked the girl to describe the incident.

‘Well’, she began, ‘I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!’

‘That must’ve been scary,’ said the teacher.

‘It sure was,’ said the little girl. ‘My kitty raised her back, went Sssss, Sssss, Sssss’ and before she could say ‘Shit!’, the Rottweiler ate her!

The teacher had to leave the room.

The little girl deserved more. The kitty deserved more. That Rotweiler was hungry; it deserved more.
