"X has died," says Ailz

X has the same name as a British celebrity and at first I thought it was the famous one who had died.

He was one of the people we initiated into Wicca. We've all moved on since those days- and we'd only been in touch with him through his ex-wife. She went up and he went down. The booze killed him.

Busy place, this planet. People coming and going all the time. Always a bit of a jolt, though, when someone you know gets up, walks out the door...

Raise a glass to him.

No, in the circumstances, maybe not...

O, what the hell!

Raise a glass.
