Absent Friends

I’m writing this on my phone as I head into town to get steadily drunk over the next couple of hours, so excuse its short nature.

I woke up today Friday 16th March, the day I’d booked as annual leave to see a friend. I cared very for this friend and I still do, but or his own reasons he no longer feels the same, and thus cancelled today’s plans. So I sat around for most of the morning and afternoon feeling pretty low.

Then at 15.56 I got a phone call from my ill friend’s mother. She was clearly distressed and informed me that he had passed away about an hour ago. He was but 18 , very sweet and funny – not a bad bone in his body and taken so early. The crap icing to a shit day, and no friend around to hug.

Almost in town now, bottoms up.
