The Dress and Leonard Nimoy dropped on the same day.
So insensitive. Actually, #TheDress got big the night before, but it was eating entire Facebook newsfeeds the next morning and it showed no signs of slowing down.
Until the Leonard Nimoy news broke. He was 83 and died of COPD after a few days in the hospital. It was not a surprise to anyone who knew him. I didn't know him well enough to know, but I'm guessing no one he cared about was surprised. So I don't know if he was ready to go, but I'm sure he had some solace.
I made this episode the day after that. And I posted on Facebook about how I was about to launch it Monday. But just before I got the chance, I too landed in the hospital. And I spent an hour thinking about death. Nimoy crossed my mind. Anyway, I'm fine but I can't drink Coke anymore.
And after that, I worried a lot less about launching this episode. In the meantime, the memes got stale. I don't apologize for late episodes, 'cause that's dumb. But I thought an explanation was in order. And I secretly want your sympathy. :)
This episode is light-hearted and I hope Nimoy would like it. I've gained a lot of perspective lately.
