It was six months ago today that The Stinkys' beloved friend Carlos Esquibel was found, murdered, in his home near downtown Albuquerque. To date, the case is cold & police have neither identified nor apprehended a perpetrator.
the eulogy that MrStinky gave at Carlos' funeral. And, second, by telling someone about Carlos.
Lovely reader, on this sad 6th-months anniversary, you are that "someone." And to keep things just a little StinkyLulu-ish, it might be right to tell you about the last phone message Lulu got from Carlos -- which was about a movie.
See, just two weeks' before his murder, Carlos had a birthday & his best friend gave him the DVD of John Waters' latest opus: A Dirty Shame. Carlos missed the flick in theatres but, the night before he called Lulu, he watched his birthday copy 2 or 3 times in succession. For all kinds of reasons, some of which Carlos rattled off in the short duration of the phone message he left on Lulu's cel, Carlos was seeking a screening partner with whom to rewatch the movie -- and to dish & discuss it as it played. MrStinky rightly recommended Lulu (whose passion for all things JohnWaters-esque leaves MrStinky non-plussed). StinkyLulu deleted the message & planned to make a date the next time Carlos' path crossed Lulu's. Days later, Carlos was dead. Lulu hasn't yet rescreened the pic, not sure why...
It's a strange thing to lose someone so tragically. Stranger still when someone's passing remains clouded by mystery, violence, injustice.
Yet, every 24th, it's a reminder to "love the one you're with"...
So, share your love, lovely readers.
And thanks for sharing in StinkyLulu's.
