coping in different ways
we all cope in different ways, i guess
Natalie took the hamster death rather well. She said she had a "feeling" about it last night. Her friend Jessica came over and Justin took them outside and helped them bury Kobe and the babies.
Ten minutes later DJ comes in the house with his friends. I carefully explain to him what has transpired. He looks in the cage.
"So, there's only one hamster left?"
"And it's my hamster?"
He peers into the cage and says nothing. A few seconds pass and he suddenly pumps his fist in the air and shouts to his friends, "HAMSTER SURVIVOR CHAMPION!"
His friends high-five him and they run outside.
Don't worry. He's already seeing a good therapis.
