Mind Flay

Welp, it looks like my grandfather, the Bishop, is about to pass.

Don't know exactly how I feel right now. Last time I saw him was when my dad died and he was getting pretty up there.

He's in a hospice right now (that carries his name, BTW), withering away from mouth cancer and probably won't last the week. He's barely coherent and, if he is conscious, probably won't recognize me. I'm debating going up there: I'd rather not remember the last image of him as a flesh-clothed skeleton with a rotting mouth and there's likely nothing I could do that would make him feel better. I don't even think I'll be able to see in time if I could.

I just found a new word

Cruster - a privileged rich kid who, through some inspiration the beat poets, adopts the hobo lifestyle. Crusters wear clothing what a homeless person may wear: untucked ratty shirts, unwashed jean shorts, and dirty gimmie hats. They may also jump trains, dumpster dive, drink liquor out of a paper bag and keep malnourished dogs to complete the look.

What's next, Godzilla? Zombie outbreak? Alien attack?
