Cinco De Mayo

Wednesday, May 5th, 2004

It is a good thing that I did not show up at work today with sombrero’s in celebration of Cinco De Mayo. By the way, this is my favorite holiday in the world … just kidding, haha. One of my co-workers died this morning. It was really shocking and sad. Especially since I had just worked with him last night. We all stood around and drank a beer after the night was over … and Walt talked about how he was going to win the Powerball today and move to Fiji. He was like “I’ll call Al up and be like, well Al … sorry I’m not coming in to work today … I won the powerball and I’m moving to Fiji.” Well he was right about not coming to work today … but he sure didn’t win the Powerball and move to Fiji. Is Fiji really a place? I guess it doesn’t really matter. It is really ironic I guess, but isn’t everything? Its so sad too. Its all I can think about. One day someone is standing there talking about his future, the next he is dead from a massive heart-attack at the age of 39. Wow … its just so weird. I guess that is all I have to say. I feel really sad today. I can’t believe I’ll never hear his voice again. Noone that I knew really well has every unexpectedly died. I don’t know.
