God is a Serial Killer
Grandpa would have deserted her if he had been able to manage stairs on his own. The goldfish in the bowl on the kitchen windowsill were always dying. He begged me not to leave him there. What a terrible moment. I said to myself, God must be a serial killer. After his funeral, everybody was talking mostly about the moon landing. It was such a long time ago. Tell me whereabouts I can find it.
