"This show contains adult content and strong language" I misread in my cross-eyed half-sleep as "This show contains strong adults and confident language" and concluded it was not for me.


It is 2am and I am sitting in my kitchen thinking about death. I first did this
when I was five years old. It wasn’t 2am then, it was about nine in the morning. Me, my mother and my grandmother were about to leave to catch the bus to go shopping. My father was there too; he wasn’t coming with us. We were joking about and then I laughingly said to him - I don’t remember why - “I wish you were dead!” It was a funny thing to say, and my dad laughed, but my mum and nanan reacted with horror and began to tell me off, and I realised that I’d done something wrong but didn’t know what, and I started to cry, and my dad said that it didn’t matter, that I didn’t know what I was saying (which was surely true, I surely didn’t have much idea of what death was), but there was no time to dwell on it because the bus was due and we had to leave, me still crying and my dad still laughing.
