The Losses

The man I work for, who I consider a friend and who I greatly admire; got unjustly fired yesterday in the latest development of Modern Absurdity in the City.

I took my daughter to meet Paul yesterday anticipating that I might not have another chance to make this happen which was not lost on her.

“It’s sad.” She said. “Isn’t it? When you are used to seeing someone you like and then you don’t see them anymore.”

She said, “I’m afraid to miss my mother. What if I miss her and go back and nothing changes… then what?”

“You just protect yourself as best you can and live with the fact that you tried to do your best and that is good enough.”
