You’re right, Wil Wheaton, there’s inconvenience (that frequently just boils down to money trouble) & then there’s tragedy. It’s wise of you to know the difference. I get that there are first world problems, & easy for me to say: I didn’t live through Hurricane Katrina, the Great Depression, or Auschwitz, (the shit I’ve seen, she says, squinting her eyes against the smoke rising from the cigarette in her mouth — sorry, always wanted to write this, nothing to do with anything), but any day above ground can be put into relative perspective. I mean, I have healthy kids, so what if my dog threw up ? Ha!

Sorry, it’s late.
