Bane's post about Johnny dying was an April Fool's joke.
Yes. For real.
--But!-- said I. --It's not April 1st yet.
Apparently Bane feels that makes it even more ideal, because then people don't suspect it's an April Fool's joke.
He also thinks no one should have fallen for it, because he did the same thing a couple years ago, but pretending it was himself that died - *posting* as LL to announce his *death.*
There's an odd mix of emotions going through me just now. A part of me is intensely relieved that one of these losses that have been going around actually isn't.
But therein lies the problem. Too many people I love have been experiencing real losses lately. Making a joke of Johnny passing away can be really wounding to them.
Thus my second comment on Bane's post:
...Kill yourself off all you want. Don't kill Johnny for fun.I'll take my revenge this way, Bane. That heartfelt post I wrote about Johnny passing away? The one I cried over, the one that made me set aside my plans for the day's small tasks, knowing none were important enough to fuss over at a time like this, and how could I possibly keep my mind on them anyway?
Especially not when so many of us have real losses on our hands lately.
I'm going to put that post back to draft now. And leave it there.
Because, hey. It may come in handy sometime. If so, it's already written.
So I won't have to waste my time doing another one.
