Is it still November?

On Tuesday nights I have Improv class. I started taking it after I finished the writing program. I've taken it once before at a different theater (The Annoyance), and I didn't care for it much. However, I decided to give it another go (at Second City), because, well, why not?

So far I have liked it a lot. I think the biggest reason for that is my teacher. She has this calm demeanor that makes you feel at ease.

Last Tuesday, as she was about to turn her phone on silent so she could focus on teaching, her doctor called. He told her that her breast cancer was back.

Talk about the worst news you could ever hear right before you're supposed to be upbeat and happy.

She went home that night and we joined another class. Unfortunately, we'll probably be getting another teacher. I'm sad, but I understand.

Anyway, the point is, I made her this card. I thought the whole class could sign it to let her know we're supporting her.  Let me know what you think.

I also told Declan the bad news. He said, "What's this cancer? Where is it? Let me at it! Let me at it!"

I think the card is a great idea! She'll appreciate the sentiment!

If no one likes this cancer stuff, can't we just make it illegal or something?
