I… it’s just that… really?

It's hard to believe and at the same time funny and sad. It reminded me of many years ago when I went out with a group of friends to watch Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Towards the end of the film, one of my friends blurted out loud "nooo, is she really dead?". Half the people in the theatre shushed her. The other half laughed at her. She didn't think it was funny.
