Dead Person of the Day – July 11 – Rob Grill

This is a special request DPD. As its well known I don’t typically like to fraternize with those quacks down the hall at that rag The Shade. They’re bastards plain and simple. I had to stop bringing in my edamame snacks because they would steal my tupperware and eat them. They’ve been known to treat their office like a toilet bowl and – what’s worse – I’m almost positive their perverts but I don’t get close enough to find out.

However, among the bunch T.W. is a sweet, valiant foot soldier in the game of life. When we first moved in to the space T.W. would drop into the NOR office with a portable record player in hand and a 2 liter of orange soda. We’d sit, enjoy orange soda and listen to his favorite musical group.

The Grass Roots.

So, its out of respect that I dedicate today’s DPD to T.W.

Here’s your hump day obit now quiet the heck down!
