All-too-predictable poor, dead M. Jackson post
"Funny," I say to Scaryduckling, "I was just about the same age as you when John Lennon died."
In fact, we had both heard about these celebrity deaths in much the same way: "Get up! You're late for school! By the way [insert name of music star]'s dead."
With nothing better to do, we sat down and worked it out through the wall-to-wall poor, dead Michael Jackson tributes filling our TV screens. Even on the local news, for he'd once been to Exeter.
So, it transpired - not just 'about the same age', but EXACTLY the same age. To the day.
You didn't see THAT coming, did you Uri Geller?
