Anthony antics

on October 12, 2017

Apart from tossing my hand aside occasionally, Anthony would often come out with the most extraordinarily apt one-liners.

I found some of my scribbled renditions of these today when Meg (my mother) helped me sort through a few boxes of mixed up paperwork – everything from tax receipts to sympathy cards to my scribbles. One of the jobs I had been avoiding was to ring the ambulance people to get a refund on the ambulance ride to the hospital from the nursing home, and the ride back. The ambulance woman on the other end of the phone promised a refund after establishing that Ants had died. Her voice softened and she offered her condolences. This made me cry, of course and, if Meg hadn’t been here, I would have given up on the rest of the paperwork.

Anyway, in amongst my scribbled notes, I found a gem:

Me: Are you okay, Ants?

Anthony: I’ve been having an argument with my ego, Jules.

    Wow, Anthony has all the talents of a stand up comic! In heaven, he probably has everyone rolling with laughter.

    I used to think you were just a brilliant writer; but now I realize you had an extraordinary mind feeding you material. What an amazing partner he was! You are a fortunate woman to have recognized what a great match he was for you when you were just a young girl and then to have enjoyed his love for so many years.
