Something bad happened. So I had a party.

Call it denial. Call it misdirection.  The party event. It's what I tend to do to escape reality.

Whether the badness comes in the form of a health issue, a lost pet, job changes and moves, or even the sudden death of a friend, I tend to believe in the old adage about busy hands and minds.
I hope it was the right decision to continue with an annual murder mystery party event, one in which our friend had always contributed greatly.

And so we gathered at the house on the cul-de-sac and gave homage to a good man taken way too early, raising him up in spirit on the Island of Mulla Mulla.
