In Heaven, No One Can Hear You Scream

The tag-line on salon.com's lead article today is great:

While I Battled Cancer, I Also Had to Deal with My Teenage Son's Embrace of Hip-Hop Culture

It's great because it's like, "How much can one person take?! Cancer AND rap?! God tizakes with one hand and clizoses a window with another fo' real."

But then, once you read further, you find:

"As part of the instructions on helping kids cope with [the hair loss] side effect of chemo, they suggest making it fun, having your kids draw funny faces on your bald head."

Which is not great because I was not told that the word "fun" was synonymous with "terrifying."
