“Died doing what he loved – putting himself well within the reach of death,” I remember joking to a friend about this headline I saw. A Cirque du Soleil performer had fallen to their death during a performance.
My friend gave me one of those looks that are supposed to say “too fucking soon”.
Morbid, slightly insensitive joke? Probably. If you’re close to me, you can count on me making maybe a dozen of those on a bad day. But it makes sense in its own twisted way.
