When Margot’s dad dies, her main worries are keeping it together during the eulogy and how she can’t listen to ‘The Cure’ without bursting into tears... never in a million years did she think he would actually leave her the f***ing tortoise.
This hibernating reptile has now outlived two generations of her family, and Margot’s worried that she might be next.
