Anna Nicole

Wow, Anna Nicole Smith has been dead five years. Hard to believe. I remember where I was when I found out. At the time, I worked 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. copy editing and designing (newspaper). That day, however, I had a meeting at noon or thereabouts. We got out at 4:30, and so I went right to my duties. A front-page discussion was going on, and I thought I understood (remember, I'm deaf) that Anna Nicole had died. I was like... "Whaaat?" The death of her son, Daniel, so recently before that had touched me. And yes, Anna Nicole really was dead.

I have no idea why the deaths of Anna Nicole and her son affected me as much as they did, but affect me they did. Wasted potential.
