Extra decade

Learning last night that my friend Unicorn had died Tuesday of a heart attack came as a real kick in the teeth. He was 47, which seems far too young.

But, poking around this afternoon and discovering that he was told twelve years ago he had one year to live, thanks to his congestive heart failure condition, makes me feel a little better. After all, living a decade past when your doctor thinks you'll keel over isn't a bad deal.

I'd love to watch the news feature this KGO web article was presumably a transcript of, but I'm betting three and a half years later, it's long gone.
