Ashen Cheer

| Learning | March 10, 2014

(Every day of this nine-week course, we sing as a class. None of us has met the other people in the course before and I’m rooming with two girls. We’re getting ready for the day and my classmate is singing to pass the time.)

Classmate:SCATTER SUNSHINE! ALL ALONG THE WAY! CHEER AND JOY AND GLADNESS EVERY PASSING DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

(This is one of the most ridiculously cheerful songs we all know and I start laughing, but then get an evil grin on my face.)

Classmate: “What did I say?”

Me: “It just struck me… your middle name is Sunshine. You go by Sunny.”

Classmate: “Yeah?”

Me: “If you got cremated, we could spread your ashes and sing SCATTER SUNSHINE! ALL ALONG THE WAYYYYYYYYYYY!

(She pauses for a minute, looking both amused and horrified.)

Classmate: “I think I’m going to have to write that one down in my last wishes.”
