She taught me both how to say “thank you” and why.
When I heard this morning, my first reaction was to go and tell Bob, but she was asleep. I wanted to reply to the email or post something here, but had too many things to say, too messy a pile of unsorted memories.
So I did the main thing that seemed obvious, which was to call people that I love with our new webcam and say hi and show them how big Dexter is and just be in their lives some more and have them in mine, because if there was one thing that Leslie taught me, it was that all this communication doesn’t mean shit if you don’t use it in a way that actually means something.
That’s what this whole big thing is for.
Trying to stop crying. Tomorrow, we’ll call more people, buy more presents, give more love. Oh, and we’ll bake a cake. She’s going to live forever.
