I was chatting with a friend I'll call 'Alex' (reprinted with permission and one line cleaned up for privacy reasons). Alex promises he would never actually kill himself, just that he feels that way times. And even if you think you know who this is, I can guarantee that it's not who you're thinking of.
Alex: I do feel suicidal occasionally but that's not how I act. Ovid: If you ever do get that way in the future, will you promise to kill me? Ovid: call me! Ovid: Shit! Ovid: s/kill/call/ Ovid: Oh god. Alex: LOL!!!! Alex: ROFLMAO.
