"I’M LEAVING YOU." THAT’S ALL HE SAID.

AND THAT GOT ME TO THINKING, ONCE I STOPPED CRYING. ONCE HE WAS GONE.

ABOUT MANY THINGS, REALLY, BUT MOSTLY ABOUT HOW FEW WORDS IT TAKES TO SAY SOMETHING TRULY HORRIBLE. YOU CAN DO IT IN TWO BUT THERE’S A LOT OF ROOM FOR MISCOMMUNICATION OR MISUNDERSTANDING. “I’M LEAVING” IS NOT EXACTLY “I’M LEAVING YOU” IF YOU SEE WHAT I’M SAYING. THREE WORDS, THOUGH … YOU CAN DESTROY A PERSON’S SENSE OF PEACE WITH NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS. JUST THINK ABOUT IT. SOME OF THE WORST PHRASES IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ONLY REQUIRE THREE WORDS.

"YOU HAVE CANCER."

"YOUR MOTHER DIED."

"FEATURING 2 CHAINZ."

SUCH HORRORS, DELIVERED WITH SUCH BREVITY.

CAN I GET SOME MORE REISLING? I’M NOT READY TO GO HOME.
