    please forgive me if this is in the wrong place.


    Today I went to the ROTC classroom for lunch and sat with Gunny (the gunnery sergeant). He's pretty cool, I guess because he looks out for me a lot even though I insist he shouldn't worry about me.

    Anyway, he asked me what was new and I was feeling pretty bad, so I opened up with "did you know thinking about suicide is a medical emergency?"
    this is how the rest of the conversation went:

    "Yes. Why do you ask?"
    "Oh...it was just interesting. I didn't know that before."
    "how did you find out?"
    "I read a lot, sir."
    "Are you contemplating a medical emergency?"
    "Um...no sir."
    "Alright. Do you want some pasta?"

    :smile: It made me feel better just knowing he cared enough to ask if I was okay. Not to mention the pasta tasted pretty good.

    For the sake of conversation: Who makes/made you feel good about things?
