That was beautiful, Brett. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for helping to bring Harris into so many lives. And I'm so sorry.
After I got home from work and settled down, I grabbed my dog, turned out the lights, and laid down to listen to the ep. I had listened to the intro this morning and I think I cried harder the second time through. But those tears turned into pure joy and laughter right away when Harris called out Adam for eating. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I laughed this hard. I was rolling around and kicking my bed throughout the show. I was holding my face from laughing so hard even though nobody could see me. The laughter had no way of escaping other than through my violent tossing and turning. This was so damn funny.
Yeah, motherfuckers wanna laugh, but comedy also gets us through the pain. Sometimes that pain comes in the form of boredom at work and general aimlessness. Other times it's much more severe and specific. I never thought I would feel something so hard from losing someone I had never met. This episode helped a lot. It helped because it was fucking hilarious. It helped because it was authentic. It helped because I know that thousands of others are listening to this today and going through the exact same thing.
Thank you, Harris. You were only a couple of months older than me and we never met, but you had a big impact on my life. I can only hope that I will live up to the lessons which you taught me.
We love you. I love you. Your comedy will stay with me forever.
