Friend: Want me to cheer you up by telling you the most horrible thing?
Me: Sure, I guess.
Friend: Ok, so you know [Friend of Hers] right?
Friend: Well, his mom died last week.
Me: Yeah, I heard that.
Friend: So, today was the funeral, so he flew back home for that, and I called him today just to see how he was holding up. When he answered, he just sounded so sad, so I wanted to say something to try and get him to laugh. I can't believe I'm even telling you this. It's so horrible.
Me: Well you can't stop now.
Friend: Ok, so his mom wanted to be cremated for whatever reason, so when I was talking to him I asked, "So, how does your mom look?"
Me: That is like 10,000 times worse than the worst thing I've ever said to anybody.
Friend: I know! He's the only person in the world I would ever say that to, but it worked. It totally made him laugh. I might be going to Hell, but it was worth it for that.
