 and after hearing this my immediate thought is: " I have no one to tell?!"

which is immediately followed by my making a mental list of everyone I could dish to.

No, they are just regular humans. Not having them is unthinkable and i am pretty smart so i figure if i can't think it, it's not going to happen. Mind over matter.

Quoting katy_kay08:

your parent's will never die?  Are they cyborgs?  

Quoting UpSheRises:

That's one of the reasons i'm so thankful my parents will never die. I can't imagine not being able to call my mom. I'm an adult with a child of my own but i need still need them very much.

Quoting lga1965:

 So many times there has been something I wanted to tell my parents--news from old friends, something exciting about grandkids...and then it hits me that I can't. They passed away a long time ago. Its too sad.And it keeps happening.

When DS was just barely 3 he told he that he hoped we died on the same day so we would never have to be alone from each other. I guess struggling with loss is in my DNA.

He was so cute at that age...really thinking about why he was here and where he was going. When he was two he asked me if the factory guys who made him glues his head on to his neck then put his mouth at the top so he could talk a lot. He also asked if i could help him get flatter so he could live in the TV. :)

Yeah...both of my parents are gone. I lost my mom when I was young, and there's so much I wish I could ask her.

What cracks me up is that someone will say that to me (at work), knowing I won't spread it around, and then they go and tell a bunch of other people and I hear the story from someone else a day or two later.

I just have to laugh at the whole scenario.

That happens to me at work all the time! We're kind of cliquey at work (front end vs grocery department etc) and our book keeper is a terrible gossip. She'll tell me some work related juicyness and preface it with "don't tell anyone!" and then by the end of the day practically the whole store knows and different people keep asking me if I've heard about it... It's a small store, but news spreads like wildfire.
