  • a 3 year old girl looks at death.

    Lucia points at the drawing of a family tree.
    She asks:
    - What's written here?
    - The names of my granny Sofia's siblings.
    - Where is she?
    - She's already dead, darling.
    - Is she in a hole or the street?
    - She's been buried, honey.
    - Well, then I will unbury her, fix her and give you back your granny, dad.
    Half of me is crying.
    The other half is hoping my life won't turn into a The Walking Dead episode.
