One of the reasons I wanted to do the challenge from Sandra this month is because her prompts are so unusual. Take today’s, “suicide.” I wonder what it is that makes someone so depressed that they would consider taking their own life? It is sad.
At first I didn’t think that there was anyone close to me that had committed suicide but then I remembered that I had an uncle who did. I was young and the family didn’t talk about it much but when I tried to Google his death, I searched for my aunt at the same time to see if I could get some information that way and I found that she was buried with her mother and father, my grandparents. That means I was right about the suicide because I’m pretty sure in this Italian Catholic family they would have been buried together as they were still married at the time of his death.
I do remember that he had a candy factory and when we would visit my aunt we’d always get a box of “pokies” to take home. They were candy coated dots like M & Ms. Sears used to sell them in their stores. Man, what memories!
See what I mean? Pretty unusual topics. Thanks Sandra!
