Can't Stop the Day

I've been meaning to write for quite a while... about how 2009 went, and what my hopes were for 2010, and all the crap I've been up to, etc, etc, etc. But I hadn't found the time, and now I have other things on my mind...

An interchange at work yesterday, which was some ways amusing and in other ways poignant:

Nick: Today's going to be a good day. I am just going to keep telling myself that. Today's a good day... dammit.
Me: You better be good, Day, or I'm going to kick your ass! I know where you live!
Nick: Where does the day live?
Me: ...Everywhere. That's why it's easy to beat up.
Nick: No, that mean's it's fricken huge, and is going to kick our asses. No matter what you do, you can't stop the day.

...No matter what you do, you can't stop a whole lot of things.

It's funny, I'm not sure why I thought it would get easier to deal with loss, the more it's happened. It never gets easier. On Monday, Dave lost a very important part of his life, a warm, furry companion and a source of unconditional love. There is nothing one can say or do to make this better - the only thing that can make things better is time.

Hopefully the rest of this week - and this year - brings better things.
