You'll Be Glad to Know...

...that the Grim Reaper has been keeping up with technology. I know cause I caught a glimpse of him the other day.

The scythe is gone. He's now got a 12 gauge. It wasn't pointed at me, yet, though the narrow black ellipse of the muzzle was growing circular as it swung towards me, slow enough that I knew I'd have time for my life to flash before my eyes, twice, maybe 3 times.

Yea, that was what turning 46 was like, knowing that 50 is coming.
