I’d like to apologize to anyone who was at that Going Away Party.
I was supremely awkward.
This was because there were some people who knew about my Mom, and were offering their condolences, and others who did not know, so therefore with them, I felt I had to act ‘normal’. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust my other friends with the information, it was just that I had no idea how to possibly bring it up.
I mean, there’s no bigger way to kill the mood of a party than to reveal that your Mom had just passed away the week before.
