I was hit by a brick

Today I was on the phone with a co-worker who I discussing inspection assignments with.  I had my phone sitting next to me and it buzzed with a new email.  I, of the short attention span, saw that it was from my hockey buddy and took a quick glance at the first sentence that popped up on the preview screen.  I say the words, “I have some bad news.”  From that point on I stopped listening to my co-worker and looked at the email.

I was stunned by what I read.  One of our fellow Old Time Hockey friends had a brain bleed and is in a coma.  Needless to say I felt like I was hit by a brick.  My co-worker on the other end of the line sensed that I wasn’t paying attention to him.  I tried to snap out of it and closed the conversation.  I hung up the phone and just sat there stunned.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
