OH Amanda, that is hilarious and awful. Im sorry! I hope your feeling better today than you did yesterday.
So, I am a complete ass. A goof friend of mine came over yesterday and told us that they did a CT scan on her 16yo son and found a 6 cm mass on his lung. She said everybody was acting like it was a big deal, and since it was under half an inch she didn't understand why. So of course like an ass, without thinking about the implications or being more thoughtful of my words, I said: "Well, 6cm is a bit bigger than that- and inch is around 2.5 cm I think." She literally just turned around and ran out of my house crying. I apologized later and told her I should not have brought it up, and we talked a bit. But still...I feel responsible for the moment she realized it was kind of a bigger deal than she thought...and I feel awful about it.
