i am a crier. and when i cry, i cry hard. but i am also a laugher. and i laugh every day, whether i’m with someone or by myself.
last night i cried with friends. we said good bye to someone we loved at 11:59. this morning i went to breakfast with my best friend and we discussed his plan for moving ahead without her. she’s been sick for over 16 years, the recent years very sick and needing his care.
we talked about her life, her passing, his future, what the week would look like in regards to funerals, obituary, etc. then he spent over 100 dollars at the book store, got toilet paper at target, then we headed home.
and saw this….
he was on the opposite side of the street, slowling rolling along. i couldn’t get my camera in time, plus he was too far away. and wouldn’t you know it, but d. makes a u-turn and heads back after the intersection so i could get a snap. but the jester had turned left. the intersection was full, but d. managed a quick right, then, a couple blocks up, flipped another u-turn as i said, “you’re a blogger at heart.” right as i leaned out to snap the shot, this funny man smiled and waved.
and d. laughed. loudly.
where’s he going? perhaps to see the king. clearly jesting is not an overly lucrative business, as he doesn’t seem to own a car.
but, he’s doing a good job. i didn’t think i would hear such a great sound today; the sound of laughter. we’ve decided that, in the near future, we may do something random that might make someone who is going through a tough time have a big laugh.
