This is a question Anonymous

One of the B3ta team danced on stage at the Brixton Academy dressed as an enormous white rabbit, and lived to tell the tale. Confess the stuff – good or bad - you've done anonymously.

As an antithesis to Bad Advice's funeral cuntiness below,
When we go to the cemetery where Mrs SLVA's parents are buried, I see several children’s graves (of which there are a surprising amount of), especially of pre-school age kids. I'll pick one at random, clear away any dead flowers, get fresh water and leave a couple of fresh ones, seeing as we always take far too big a bunch of flowers ourselves.

I got caught once, just as I was putting a couple of flowers in the little pot thing, the parents arrived and asked me who I was.

"No one you know" I said
"What are you doing then?" the mother asked. So I told her. She looked at me for a couple of seconds and then threw her arms around me.
"Thank you" she said and I felt a tear against my cheek. She let go and the dad came over and shook my hand just as Mrs SLVA came over.
"He does it every time we come here. He picks a child and leaves a couple of flowers. This time it just happened to be your turn." she explained. Then we said 'bye' and left them to it. Knowing that my actions were being appreciated really made my day.

A couple of days later my missus showed me something in the local rag. There was an entry in the classifieds section. "A heartfelt thank you to the kind stranger at the cemetery". She cut it out and kept it.

You, sir, are marvellous.
So much so you can have my first post, which hopefully won't go as catastrophically wrong as Totach's did.

Children ought not to die

Brought a smile to my lips and more than a few tears to my eyes!

As a dad myself, I can't imagine how awful it must feel to know there's a grave somewhere with your child in it. Every time I visit my grandad's grave I have to walk past the area with the brightly coloured, closely spaced headstones and the teddy bears, I shall do what you do next time.

Clicky btw.

Well done.
No one makes me a bit teary, ever. I'm a big fat cunt.

You just did though, and I'm surprisingly appreciative. X.
