Dad: No, you don’t understand. Fluffy passed away in the night.
Sarah: Oh, she died! That’s too bad, but she was getting up there in years.
Dad: Yes, but she didn’t die a natural death. She was run over by the neighbor’s car.
Sarah: You mean she was flattened? Cool!
Dad: Well, I wouldn’t put it that way, but I understand if you’re in shock. I guess people show grief in different ways...
Sarah: Fluffy went out with a bang. That’s the way she would have wanted to go.
Dad: I’d like to think of her as being in heaven and she’s gone to meet her maker.
