While I was talking with Dan, my other line beeped. It was Shannon, calling to say that The Co-op will be closed tomorrow until 2:00 for Gus' funeral. Gus. With all of my life drama in the last two days, I'd kind of forgotten about the work drama that I was about to step back into.
Well, not totally forgotten. People were talking about it at Robert's, and at Maria's. Ricardo was feeling the weight of it too. I can only imagine what the last two days have been like, what today will bring. Shannon said that a bunch of management types were going to the funeral, but that she wasn't, and this made me feel better about my not wanting to go. I was afraid that nobody would be there, you know?
This has been an amazingly tumultuous couple of days. I'm still kind of amazed, among other things, that I was so consumed by grief and stress yesterday that I actually vomited. It's been a while for that.
