it’s September. my birthday month. it’s my second-favorite month of the year. because: October. man, October is the best. and we’re almost there. we’re almost there.
I found out today that my high school graduating class will have its 25th class reunion in November. that’s weird.
I also found out today that one of my classmates died last year. I thought about him for a minute. realized I can still picture him in my head. how he was then. lanky and goofy. then I looked him up online. I found mentions of an arrest and an obit that I can’t read because the small-town newspaper in which it appeared apparently has its articles on lockdown. pay up or you can’t read. I didn’t know him that well. I didn’t pay to read it.
