I’m apologising now for the fact that will soon be made known to you:
This is going to be a short post.
It is so draining to say goodbye to people I love. In the words of my mom…I can’t hardly stand it.
I never knew I could love a human child like I love that boy. Truth be told, his was the hardest goodbye. My parents’ was sad, too, as was my sister and brother-in-law and grandma.
After that, I gave up. We just skipped town without saying goodbye to anyone else. So if you are in Mesa and saw me there just a few days ago, now you know: I’m gone.
We’ve just spent 15 hours on the road and have stopped over in a quaint new hotel that has eight fluffy pillows on its king sized bed. In other words, I’ve died. And gone to Heaven (despite what my heckler might have wished upon me).
And to anyone who lives, has lived, or ever will live in Utah: I just want you to know that I am impressed at how well you all are keeping the billboard business alive and thriving–this stretch of I-15 has been fascinating. I put away my Real Simple magazine and read the side of the road. Truly.
