>Where were you …

>… when you heard that …
Kennedy had been shot ?
ditto John Lennon ?
or that Princess Di had died ?

in my case the answers are
a] no idea – I was 9
b] in the car on the way to a dental appointment
c] at a dance class with my daughter

and today that list was added to …
so where were you when you heard that Michael Jackson had passed away of a heart attack, aged 50 ?
– because I didn’t have the radio on in the car this morning, I found out when one of the other girls mentioned it over a cup of tea at Robyn’s a couple of hours ago

and it feels so odd… even that the eternal Peter Pan was 50 seems hardly credible.

what a strange sad end to an equally strange life
