Eons ago, when I was going through a divorce, people would come to me and say, “Poor thing, I know how you feel” And I’d think, “No, you don’t.” There are some feelings that, unless mutually experienced, you just cannot comprehend. The death of a family dog, for instance, means nothing to a friend unless they are also a dog lover.

Nuke them!”
