“Bullshit!”

“Watch your language.”

“I haven’t even gotten started yet!”

“Why are you so angry? I was just reading a post from Facebook.”

“Everything does happen for a reason. I punch the wall, I break my hand.”

“My dear brother, you are confused. It means that bad things happen so that good things can happen.”

“That’s stupid. Why are you ruining my lunch?”

“I’m not.”

“You are. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. For NO reason. It really, really sucks!”

“There was this guy who fought in Afghanistan…”

“Yeah, he got blowed up real good and now he can help others who are just as blowed up as he is. He was fighting for his country and some sonofabitch used a bomb on him. Bad thing, good guy.”

“Bernie,”

“This vet, he made lemonade out of lemons. That is something to be admired. But getting blown to shit by an insurgent fucker is a bad thing. The only reason is that the poor bastard was an American soldier.”

“Pessimist.”

“Realist. I bet there are some bad things that happen to people so that good things can be accomplished. Just not EVERY bad thing.”

“You’re wrong.”

“One word. Tsunami.”
