Well Fuck.

Post by asthmatic camel »

Just had a call from Mrs. Camel to say that her younger brother, my astrological twin, has died.

Completely out of the blue, this one. He was a big, strapping lad; my height but built and a marathon runner. Really lovely bloke, too.

Fuckshit&bollocks.

If I'm not around for a while, this'll be why.

Good christ AC.

So very fucking sorry to hear this.

Not Covid-19 related I take it. But things are weird and getting weirder.

Sincerest condolences to you and Mrs. Camel, AC. Take care.

Thanks guys. Mrs. Camel's safe and sound at her sister's, so I have no comforting duties for a while.

It sounds to me as though it was a heart attack. Apparently he was feeling a bit poorly this morning so phoned in sick and went back to bed. His wife went out for two hours, came home and found him slumped over, dead, as though he'd been trying to get up in a hurry. Not the dreaded virus then; far too quick.

I'm honestly shocked. Of all the people I know, he's the last one I thought would take an early bath. Still running marathons at 54. Fuck. I'm beginning to wonder if fag-o-cycling is quite as good an idea as I thought.

As for stereos, he wasn't short of those, nor of anything else. The man was a top tax bracket, senior management type.

Jeebus!

God, sounds like my brother. Feeling a bit peeked and then literally dropped dead. Literally.

It's small consolation, AC, but there are much worse ways of going.

I know, ed.

My first step-father went this way, literally dug his own grave.

In his early fifties and apparently in good health, he decided to dig the foundations for a new conservatory himself to save money. (Tight-fisted git, he wasn't poor by any means.) So, I leave home at 12.00 on a Saturday to play lacrosse, say "See you later, Walt, don't work too hard!" and that was the last time I saw him alive. My step-brother showed up to say hello at 13.00 and found his father dead in the ditch he'd just dug. Myocardial infarction, dead before he hit the ground.

Ah well, life goes on. Just not so happily for a while.
