Lights Out

So, a few years ago, I met this guy who was more than fun.  We hung out, became friends, we even learned we have the same birthday (albeit he was 12 years younger than I.)  

Tonight, I found out that my friend is gone.  Just like that.  He had been drinking, and went to take the subway home.  He stumbled off the platform and hit his head on the track.  He died.  Alone.  At 23 years old.

The funny thing is that I was kind of peeved with him this morning because he didn't call to tell me when and where we were going to go meet to go to the beach.   I had no idea he was in a morgue.

Cherish your friends.  You never know that the last time you see them will be the last time.
