I heard

I heard his voice on the radio.

I heard the screams in the background.

I heard him ask for the Sheriff.

I heard him ask for the Chaplain.

I heard the lump in his throat.

I heard his voice crack.

That is why I don't work around the holidays.


  1. Brings up a host of various "memorable" experiences just reading that. As it will for any of us. Sigh..... :(

  2. Grumpy - I don't know what was going on there, but I know it involved death and humans - a recipe for sorrow.

  3. I'll never understand why the holiday brings out the worst in some people.
