There's nothing quite like waking up to a call from my friend D.
I love her to bits, but she really has quite the knack for drama. More than anyone I've ever met.

This morning was one of those mornings.

She called me in between sobs telling me our friend Johannah was hit by a train. I'm a logical person, and knowing D, I chose this particular time to assume that she's exaggerating. Hit by a train? Come on. That doesn't actually happen to anyone.

As usual, I was wrong.

My friend got hit by a train. A fucking train. How the hell does that happen? Shes a tiny little thing, she can't weigh over 100 pounds, shouldn't she just fly away or something?!


I'm not sure what I'm supposed to really be thinking or doing right now. I'm just sort of staring at my computer screen feeling a strange combination of "What the fuck" and "Oh my god".
