I was hanging out with a coworker's daughter. She and I were both really tall and he had talked us into going to some tall people club. We ditched it because we were 22 and everyone there seemed to be about 40, and then we went to a bar where a band was playing that she knew. We noticed in the car that they were playing all Beatles songs, and then I guess at the bar we heard the news.

I was not a big Beatles fan and even less a John Lennon fan. They were my older sisters' time, and although I might have to duck flying rotten tomatoes for this, I find Lennon's voice annoying, a British accent with a stuffed-up nose, and I do not like the song "Imagine". I think it's silly and treacly.

But, I was sorry that he was killed. It was stupid and a wasteful death. A couple of years later when they made that little Strawberry Fields section in Central Park, a friend and I went to look at it, and we were like, "That's it?" A little mosaic circle with the word, "Imagine" inside. Not impressive.

I believe I was just back from a surf trip.
