Overheard in the Office - May 19, 2008

Attorney (A): So you got your 15 minutes of fame in the paper. You were a pallbearer eh?

Non-attorney (N): Yes, but it's actually today.

A: Oh my, who was it? How did it happen?

N: One of my best friends. Our kids grew up together. He had stomach cancer, and it got him less than two weeks after diagnosis. Not a bad way to go I guess, he died in his sleep.

A: Well, I guess he was no Jimi Hendrix. *chuckle*

N: *uncomfortable courtesy chuckle*, I suppose not.
