Nothing to do with 9/11.
From time to time I get in the mood to Facebook/Google people I’ve known to see what’s going on with them, if anything. Last night I found a bunch of peeps from my HS class with open FB walls. Didn’t realize so many keep their shields down; then again, their chitchattery is relatively bland. (I’m sure mine is, too, but I try to keep it locked due to super-paranoia.)
Anyway, one thing led to another, as it does, and when I looked for an old boss from the 1980s, a larger than life type of guy I’ve loosely based a few characters on here and there … I found his obit.
This was rather shocking, though I don’t know why. People do die, so why not him? Well, he wasn’t that old at the time of death (early 60s) and had been a health food nut. But hey long time ago one of my doctors got hit and killed by a car while jogging in the early morning darkness. So, anyway. Don’t know the cause of death of ex-boss, nor am I in contact with anyone whom I could ask.
I’m not sad here, don’t get me wrong. The guy was a complete jerk, treated me like crap, and I ended up walking off the job one day after two years sans notice. But he wasn’t the kind of person you’d ever forget is all. To this day I can quote him verbatim. Other old bosses? Not so much … they all blend into the mist.
Weird. Maybe there really is TMI out there.
Or I could quit snooping when I’m supposed to be writing…
