Rudy Park by Darrin Bell and Theron Heir for January 19, 2011
Boy says, "I need to figure out how to break it to my parents that I understand about death." Rudy says, "What're you going to say?" Boy says, "I'm going to sit them down and tell them that I understand our cat Magus died, and that's why her body stopped working." Boy says, "I'm going to explain that death is a natural part of life, and that they don't have to treat me like a baby. I get it." Boy says, "If they're still feeling upset, I'll offer to take them out so they can buy themselves a treat." Rudy says, "If all else fails, ice cream."
