It was the worst day of my life. It was the day I felt life kicked me in the balls. He looked so peaceful, like he was asleep. I however knew it wasn't true. There was no light in his eyes, instead they were a discolored pale white. I wanted to hold him and wake him up like I had so many mornings to get him ready for school. Tempted to let the tickle monster attack and have him squeal to life like every weekend. Except I knew it wouldn't happen the way I wanted. He was simply just gone.

[Karen is quiet for a moment, what he's saying is like deja vu to her and it'll be obvious on her face.] ...I'm sorry for your loss.

[She nods a little. She's gotten better at dealing with it and now she just tries to help others who are in that same situation.] Did you need to talk about it?

It happens. Best you can do is just live through it. People can't accept that it's okay to have a bad day now and then.

You should make it a day to celebrate his life rather than look at it as a reminder of his death. Do something he would've loved.

You've gotta come over and work with me then, our weekend project is building a treehouse. [She shares his smile and a laugh, she's not kidding.]

It is so far. A bunch of cops standing around arguing over directions, god forbid we ever take a road trip together.

I have no idea. I'm frankly surprised we spend this much time together. You'd think we'd be sick of one another after working 10-hour days.

I know that, I'm just saying I thought we'd be sick of each other after hour 20 or something.

Well aren't I just blind. I'd like to think I'd have remembered you.

I know how that goes. Listen, why don't we get together sometime? If you don't want to put up with half the squad I could meet you for a drink later.

[Laughing.] Something like that. You pick the time and the place, and I'll meet you when we're done here.

Shouldn't be that long. Hey, we should go to Chili's. They have those onion...whatever they're called. I don't know, but I like them.

It is my preferred generic restaurant of choice. [Laughing.] You take your time, I'll see you in a bit. Just order me a beer if you beat me there.
