before you laugh at the way somebeing identifies take a moment to ask yourself why you want to laugh. is it harmful? then don’t laugh, bring it up to them. is it strange and weird to you? im sure you’re weird to somebeing else and you wouldn’t want them laughing at you. do you want to laugh because you are uncomfortable and nervous about your own identity or past experiences? im sorry buckaroo but that isn’t the right way to deal with it
basically, you don’t have a valid reason to laugh at, ridicule, or bully any kind of folk and if you do you lose all respect from me and i hope everyone against bullying
he should say something useful, but he can’t remember the last time anything out of his mouth actually helped someb– -ody. what he wants to say is: no, don’t, because I don’t kn- -ow you but i’d like to; you’re alright, you’ve yet to piss me off, && if something consistent leaves me again i’ll rip out my hair, i’ll rip out all my fucking teeth. he wants to say i’m sorry, because i am not a good acquaintance, && i cannot help you, i never know what to say, but i care – i care i care.
that care chokes him up, and for a very long while he is si- -lent .. so silent and unfocused that it could be mistaken as the prelude of a rage. when he speaks, his whole body qui- -vers; he is gripped with the sudden terror of lacking a pat– -tern, of saying and doing the wrong thing; of failure. Gre– -ndel’s voice is a stolid croak; he says -
“ yeah, me too, lady… but life goes on, and God ain’t give a shit whet - -her we live or die, so I live to spite him & I’ll die when he needs me, ” and drinks.
