A Tentative Obituary.

It always irritates me slightly when people wait until somebody is dead before telling us how splendid that person was.

‘The world has lost a great man,’ they write, often disingenuously.

I’m hoping that when I die, some astute person will write:

‘The world has lost something it was never quite sure it wanted, and the feeling was mutual.’
