I just got a phone call that one of the kids I worked with, he played basketball at the high school, was found this morning by his roommate at Cal Poly, apparently of a drug overdose or interaction.

I don't think it's quite hit me yet, 'cause while I'm sad, and pissed at Brian, who certainly knew better, I'm neither blisteringly angry nor numbingly sad, which is how I always thought I'd feel if a friend died.
