"Sometimes people are mean, and sometimes things will be hard. One of your jobs is to try and make sure that that never makes you mean and hard, too."

If you’re ever interested in feeling as if you’re on the verge of losing your mind, you need complete only a two-step process:

  1. Find a way to give someone you love deeply a life-threatening disease, and
  2. While your loved one is at home battling death, stand in a restaurant line behind a person complaining loudly that their burrito came with sour cream, even though they asked for no sour cream, and they guess they’ll just eat it with the sour cream, even though the calories, but maybe they should get a discount now, or, like, a soda?
