But I digress, excessively.
Do you do Pinterest? Do you even know what it is? I love it. It is a huge time suck but so much fun. Not in the sense of "Ha Ha ha", although there is occasionally that. But as an excuse to keep you from writing or editing or vacuuming. Many a moon ago, I came across an entry that I repinned, also many a moon ago.
Well, not too easy to read but that is extra large. Original runs way off the page edge.
Anyway, that was Mitch Hedburg. I really liked him. He was so George Carlinesque in his take on reality but picked on the strange little things, like the waffle. I don't think George Carlin did waffles..
Fran came home from a class one day to tell me her speech teacher mentioned Mitch Hedburg. She was sure I was the only person in the world that ever heard of him. So today someone reposted this on Pinterest. My caption was "Gone too soon." He died in his early fifties from some drug related thing which is not a big deal, Heath Ledger, me, etc., but so brilliant to be snuffed out so soon. So I linked to the poster's board and she had some more of his stuff. I thought it was great that a person can live on like that. No body special but left a nice legacy. I am glad to remember him.
