I just had a conversation with a guy I know from work. Heard his kids were staying with his wife for the holidays and I gave him a call on christmas and wished him merry christmas. It apparently meant a lot to him and he hugged me. I much prefer emotional bro-fist, my dad never hugged me as a kid so it feels weird hugging a dude.

Ahh mr hitchens.. Good man, introduced me to Johnny Walker Black. "What can be asserted without proof, can be dismissed without proof", one of many brilliant quotes. He had a way with words that was unique.
I was shocked to hear about his death bed confession.
