The coroner

I didn’t know what to expect when I went to go pick up your belongings. I had never done anything like that before. I hadn’t read about it in a story or seen anything like it in a movie. I was worried about getting there on time and worried about parking.

I was the only car parked in the parking lot, and there was nobody in line. I went to the window, showed my ID, and they said to wait.

I was called into a room and there I waited. It was like an office but there was only one door and a window with a hole cut out where things get passed through. I brought a bag because I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what my father had on him.

He had some cash on him, but they give you a check and not cash. They gave me his wallet, which was empty and gave me all of what was in it, separately. I don’t remember the contents of what I came home with, but it wasn’t anything that I kept.

Most of it smelled and all of it didn’t have any sentimental value to me.

I was scared about doing it. But I was glad when it was all over.

The building was beautiful, very historic. It somehow made the whole process easier for me.

December Push Up Challenge

I am doing monthly personal challenges to help motivate myself. 

It is a simple way for me to try and do something everyday for 30 days. 

I will update this post for what I plan on doing next month.

Here are the things that I remembered about you:

  • One time you ate the couch in half
  • You would get excited about the windshield wiper, you maybe thought it was a bird
  • When I would drive you in fey, the leaves would come out from underneath the hood and you would look backwards at the leaves flying out of the car
  • The first time I drove you downtown to Erin’s loft, you sat on my lap most of the way
  • It made me laugh when we went to the dog park and when you got tired with catching the ball, you would just go and lay down in the shade
