When I was typing up my last post, Carl had already died, and I didn’t know it. There I was prattling on about the dumbest shit in the world, like I know anything, as if I have the faintest clue what I’m talking about, and he was already gone, hours gone. Isn’t that just the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard?
I’m sorry. I’m just very sorry.
Carl found an immense amount of inspiration in Lance Armstrong and was a full believer in the Live Strong philosophy. Honestly, I thought that whole thing was a bit hokey and overplayed, especially how commercial and marketable it became. But after everything, well, it doesn’t seem so trite anymore. I invoke it now to honor a departed friend. Live strong.
Pretty cheesy, but saying it makes me feel better.
