Doug

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« During the final game of the World Series Doug Post died. Doug was my brother-in-law, and I knew him when he was dating my sister. To add color to the time my sister had two guys on the line during her hook-up-permanently days, and she chose the other guy, Seffen, and went to Germany. Marriage, baby, international relo and ciao my sister returned to Doug . . . I had no sense of Doug’s wounded emotion when Marty went to Germany. During these Doug-wounded-by-my-sis days I reached out to Doug, and he smoothed me into employment at Hyatt Regency Columbus Ohio in 1984 — awesome fun job. The Hyatt was delaying my Univeristy progress, so I quit and finished at OSU March 1987. During those years Doug and I worked at the Hyatt, he in fine dining and me in parking, so we were linked in two ways one through a sorrowful link to my sister, and the other through happy employment. At least a decade passed before I was able to see my brother-of-woman-who-dumped-me status from Doug’s perspective. I behaved out of being naive the same way I do today less naive. The men who come into my life through my sisters are mine — and their link to me endures independent of their links to my sisters, but with Doug my fantasy has ended — I’ve lost Doug and I am deeply saddened at this moment for the first time since the death window opened during last night’s World Series. I sit in El Carretero saddened with tear-filled eyes. Knowing I can’t control my emotion though I can manipulate it, so I chose this setting for time in solitude with the memory of Doug Post. Adam has me on a marketing call list, so I know I might ring my way out of this memorial moment to pitch his services. I can flip if I’m called though I prefer this time exploring my emotional and paying respect to the memory of Doug Post 1950 – 2016. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
