I don’t know what the weather thing in my sidebar says whenever it is that you’re reading this but here is what it says right now.
Rory’s bio class is out of school all day today on a field trip to a local estuary to study the environment and collect samples for back in the lab. I hope they’ve cancelled it.
…and then the bad news.
For some reason last night it appears I rang the car accident woman’s husband on my own phone – I don’t know why, force of habit I guess. Anyway he rang me an hour ago to talk to me.
She died. He’s completely distraught. He wants to meet me though I’ve told him she didn’t say anything, she was incoherent. He was crying and then so was I – both sobbing. I said if he still wants to meet me after the funeral he should ring me again then. He said I should come to the funeral, that he’d let me know the details. I said no. No way, that’s macabre. I did determine that they have no kids. She was younger than I thought; only 32.
