Truman X

Percival asked if I could send him a copy of the book to QC via LBC. He had promised his friend Truman a signed copy, and he would give it to him later that night. I said, hey, I also know a Truman, are we talking about Truman X? He said yes!

“So, how’s Truman X? Haven’t seen him in a while,” I asked.

“He died a few days ago. I’ll be going to his wake tonight with the book.”

I had so many questions. How did he die? When? Was he sick? Maybe it was possible to open the conversation with “Truman has died”? Percival explained the circumstances. And of course some side questions: What will I write in the dedication? Why does he still need to give Truman the book? Should I address Truman himself, or the family, in the dedication?

The simplest solution would be to just sign it without any dedication, but I opted to write a short, heartfelt note to Truman, praying that God would shine his face upon him. It was a rather strange dedication to write, but I was happy to give him a rather unique send-off.

I was able to LBC the book to Percival, and he made it to the wake.
