"That's probably because it's salmon, Hannah," Sue told her. We all got up from the table a little more buzzed than when we had sat down and directed ourselves to bed.

Besides, why should I live so that when I die I give fresh meat to the worms? I hope that I am rotted and they don't want to eat me. F@#$ck the worms."
