So, my cousin Henry is getting ready to turn eight. At one point in his young life, he had leukemia. (No, has. Wait, had. Fuck.) Every year, the family does a Light the Night Walk to Cure Cancer. About a month or so ago, Emilie (Henry’s mom) sent out an email to collect donations. I hate sending checks because they take forever to clear, so I was going to send cash.
I’m an asshole.
Em, please do not tell Henry how awful I am, because Grady hates me, so Henry is my only buddy.
I don’t think there are enough apologies in the world for not donating to a cause that fights a disease your own young cousin has-or-had-and-you-are-too-dumb-to-live-because-you-don’t-even-know-for-sure.
If you would like to show me up and let everyone know how much you are not an asshole, please make a donation. Every little bit helps.
