Be Well in Bewail

Leslie returns home from a month long Entomology conference. He finds his wife's ring on a table next to a butterfly in a jar, covered in the dust with a note stating that she cannot be in the marriage any longer because she feels neglected by him due to his research. Leslie roams around the TV channels trying to clear his mind off the matter but each channel reminds him of companionship and howyou should not give up on your significant other. He goes to the park where he and Samantha first met, hoping he will get her back with a gift of two butterflies in a jar, to represent both of them but this is when Samantha shows Leslie that the butterflies need to be set free to fully be themselves. This is when Leslie sees that he needs to let Samantha go so she can be herself to her best abilities.
