The last time I saw my cousin Danny before his accident was Open Mic Night up at the Red Parka Pub. That night my twin brother and I decided to replace the Turtle Taxi that night and give our cousins and their friends a ride home after closing time. Somewhere along the way the song “Teach Me How to Dougie” came on the radio. For whatever reason, as soon as the song started, Danny picked up my miniature schnauzer and proceeded to teach her how to Dougie. I was laughing so hard watching them both in the rear view mirror that I almost lost focus of the road.
I first found out about his accident while out in Colorado, when things were at their most uncertain, and my memory immediately thought of that night up in New Hampshire . It most definitely gave me comfort to remember that my most recent encounter with Danny was something so hilarious, outlandish… and typical of him.
