Awful.

Crazybrains woke me up with a phone call at 730 yesterday morning. I knew something was wrong-- we had talked just the night before, and 730 is pretty goddamn early.

"Patrick's mom died."

And I just...lost it. It's obviously awful to lose your mother, but here's the kicker: Pat's dad died in April. That's six months ago. When I saw him this summer he seemed to have dealt with his Dad's death with such maturity, such poise. But now this? In half a year he's gone from carefree college student to...orphan.

You know, I know that bad things happen to good people. I get that. But come ON. I mean, this kid is practically Job. He's New Orleans.

God has one hell of a sense of humor.

    College is stressful enough without having to play the part of Job. I'm sorry to hear that your friend has to go through this twice in one year. :(
