Laura Cantrell's voice is awesome and this song has that forlorness I relate to having spent Saturday night alone.

I really hope I remembered to pick this premium...

@glenn the police forced me to stay with her DEAD body or over 3 hours! Until the medical examiner arrived.
Avatar 11:57am Prashanth:

@bipolar guy: that's unfortunate and sad. I hope the good memories of your mom help blur the tragedy you had to face.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

I think bipolar guy is just trolling.
Avatar 12:03pm Prashanth:

@Spatulator: troll or not, he will only meet nice people here :) If he is really trolling, I am sure he will get bored soon...coz he cannot incite anyone here...but do you really think someone would troll with his mom's demise as an excuse?

Bipolar guy sounds like a liar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

YES. Welcome to the Internet.

There is no reason the police would force him to stay in the same room as a dead body. They can't detain somebody that long without making an arrest. If they arrested him, he'd be in prison or the back of a police car.
What plausible explanation is there for *needing* him there? As he implied, he's not an expert like a medical examiner.

Don't worry about jones and xray , bigmouth.
