Getting What You Ask For

The card store’s categories are precise.  I scoured the aisles in vain for a get well card for a friend who is ill.  In fact, she’s very ill — she’s dying.  She will start home hospice as soon as she’s released from the hospital.

All of the cards in the get well section say, “Get Well”. Most were jokey with open hospital gown backs or baleful looking puppy dogs.

It never occurred to me that sometimes it is inappropriate for a get-well card to shout “Get Well’.  Go figure.
 
I moved over to the rack holding cards with no message and found several suitable for sending.

    I’m sorry to hear about your friend. I’ve noticed that in addition to “Get Well” section, there’s usually a “Serious Illness” section.

      I was at “Just for Fun” in Noe Valley. I didn’t see a serious illness section. Either the store takes its name very seriously or else we just don’t get that sick here in the Valley.
