This was not a good day. The first message I had on my voice mail at work was that a good friend had died earlier that day. Although I had just seen him before Christmas it had been a few years since I had seen him before that. Regardless, our friendship was such that even if months or years went by between visits when we did meet it was as though no time had lapsed. As kids growing up, he, my cousin and I, did everything together. We always played on the same hockey team, had sleepovers and went fishing together. I’m going to miss my buddy. I can’t imagine what his wife and young children are going through. Needless to say I wasn’t very motivated to work out or watch my diet. I did manage to drag my *** to the gym.
