Dead man's food
I have been eating a dead man's food the last few days. On September 18, 2009 a man was found dead on a Trax train in Salt Lake City.
Theron Read was roommate of a friend of mine. In the days, weeks, and months following his death, my friend was forced to deal with the property left behind by the dearly departed. Theron's family was little help. The roommate was left with the task of placing much of Theron's worldly possessions. So.....making a long story short, I was presented with a small box of food. "Do you want this?", I was asked. "Well......sure. Why not.", I answered.
So, for a few recent evenings, and for the last two days at work, I have been eating a dead man's food.
