For those of you not in the know, this last week has been especially painful for me and my friends. We lost someone very dear to us, Mr. Thomas James. I was thinking about recording a tribute episode to him, but that won’t come until I’m at a point that I can reminisce without completely breaking down emotionally.
Thomas was the kind of guy, you know the ones, that made the best of every situation, no matter how bad. He had a million and one stories to tell, and if you’ve heard all those I promise you hadn’t heard all his jokes. It’s truly a crime that he passed on when he did.
Funny thing, regret; it makes me wish I hadn’t moved to Seattle at all, so I could have had more time with my buddy. Doubly so now since I will miss his funeral, it just came too soon (sorry). But I have a plan! The next time I am down in Texas I’m going to pay tribute to my friend in a way I think he’d find hilarious. My plan is to open a can of Dr.Pepper at his grave and poor it on it. I figure it’s somewhat fitting, it’s his favorite soda and an homage to Chrono Trigger’s humorous side character Toma, and I get to make a “poor some for the homies” joke while doing it. I think he would laugh.
Unfortunate news aside, I’m happy to announce that not shit else has been happening, so to the 3 people that still keep an eye out for us I apologize again for letting y’all down, I’ll do better next week.
