It's your fate, but it's not your fault.
The cancer? How weird. Were they calling it that like you would say "the flu"?
You say "No, I have the Terrible Cancer. But thank you for asking."
Was it an older person? That's what they called it. Either that or "a cancer". You just say, Yes, and I'm getting treatment.
yes, i caught it from the internets
I would have laughed... at them. No joke. And if it WAS an old person, as mentioned above i would say, "why do you have 'The Diabetes'?" except you have to say, die a beet US. They love that. ;)
