Dad: So what's the problem, Sammy? Is it just Mum or is it something else? Maybe... school - are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?

Sam: You really want to know?

Dad: I really want to know.

Sam: Even though you won't be able to do anything to help?

Dad: Even if that's the case, yeah.

Sam: OK. The truth is actually... I'm in love.

Dad: Sorry?

Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is I'm in love and I was before she died, and there's nothing I can do about it.

Dad: Aren't you a bit young to be in love?

Sam: No.

Dad: Oh, OK, right. Well, I'm a little relieved.

Sam: Why?

Dad: Well, you know - I thought it might be something worse.

Sam: Worse than the total agony of being in love?

Dad: Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.

how true.
