What can YOU say in six sentences?
One my my dad's friends was killed in a freak road accident, the day before yesterday. He was a good man and at the age of 67 he had just retired and was starting to enjoy life, although his version of 'enjoyment' meant helping out at an organization for underprivileged women and children.
Which was exactly where he was headed at 5:35 am on 01/01/2012, when a speeding ambulance lost control, crashed into the brick wall of a coffee shop, the force of the impact causing a small piece of the brick to fly 15 meters before smashing into the back of his skull, killing him almost instantly.
I was not particularly close to him, I haven't spoken to him in over a decade now so I guess it is okay to admit that his death does not affect me much. However he did give me my very first gift when I was 5, a small blue battery-operated table top toy fan, which wasn't spectacular but for some reason 2 decades later, it still sits on my bookshelf.
I wonder however, if this might actually be a pretty decent way to pass out after all, when you dont see death coming,it is instantaneous and spectacular enough to inspire people to make blog posts about it.
