The handle broke off of the pan as I was cooking last night, making it even more difficult to cook with my bandaged hand that I had carelessly sliced open moments before. Dim Sum with Joel turned into a bout with food poisoning this afternoon and then I burned the very same finger that I sliced last night. But nothing could compare to what was coming next.
All the little shit, the litany of bullshit that I post and bitch and whine about on the daily, each and every bullet point of my ongoing and ridiculous lifedrama was put in excruciating perspective this afternoon. Everything came to a screeching halt.
Today I lost a friend and a colleague.
There are so very few people in this world who I actually like, that losing one is just unacceptable.
