I’m always saying it: the universe is too strange and too perfect to be random.
I just had to go on a grocery store run, and there at Target, I ran into Eric.
You would be easily excused if you don’t know who Eric is. But if you do know, you would realize how absolutely insane it is that I just happened to run into him after all that has happened this week.
Eric was the GM of Old Chicago when I started, and he was the person who hired me.
I asked him how he was, and he said, “Medium.” We caught up for a little while; he hadn’t heard about the mass collapse of our former mutual colony. Then we nodded from a distance and said see you later.
It brought all of this full circle in a way that I know it’s the end.
I’ve said it previously, but I have to say it again: I just want to thank all of my co-workers and guests — my family — for everything. This was a huge part of my life, and just know that for the last few years I have gotten up every day to give you all the very best of me, even if I never reached that bar.
Oh — the photo of Squirrel Girl? She’s one of my favorite superheroes, and she is the embodiment of hope and resilience and compassion and reason. She’s unbeatable, and she will be the first to tell you that you’re unbeatable, too.
Love you all. ❤
