32 of 210 : Les

At age 11, whenever she’d drop something or bump into a wall, she’d say, “Whoops, my brain tumor’s acting up!” Her friends would always laugh. By the time she was 18 she had new friends who weren’t in on the joke. She loved the way they’d blanch and fall silent.

This made me laugh out loud.

I remember laughing once when she made that comment and all her friends were struck silent. They thought I was the biggest boor to laugh at someone's dire infirmity, which of course only made me laugh harder.
