It turns out mourning isn’t on as predictable a path as one of those tacos marauding its way through your body.
5 Ridiculous Lies You Probably Believe About Psychology

Here, ask yourself: Is there a stage that seems to be missing here? Well, how about the one where you yearn for the person to be alive again? As in, the emotion you actually feel the most after someone dies? Well, it’s not there because the five stages weren’t supposed to apply to people mourning the loss of others — they are emotions the terminally ill express when facing their own deaths.

I decided that since I had been having a hermit day and not breathed in any fresh air, I would go outside and toss the trash, then grab the mail. As I approach the dumpster I notice that someone is there. Upon getting within garbage tossing range, I realize it is a man, wearing a backpack, using a high powered flashlight while he roots through the garbage. Keeping eye contact, I tossed my stuff in in the opposite corner that he was looking in, and went back upstairs. This is the second dumpster diver I’ve seen in the last week. The first guy was actually in the dumpster. Can I just say how many people throw away their needles, capless, around this town? A lot. I am betting there are some in that dumpster. Good luck to you, random gentleman.
