I am fucking depressed. I was on the cusp and just got shoved over. Why you ask? Hurricane Mikey has stopped blogging! I have always loved reading anything Mikey wrote. Shopping lists, chicken salad recipes, poker stories, but especially his epic posts. And no you can't access them anymore either.
If you want to read all the reasons, they are HERE. And they're all valid reasons. Hell he certainly doesn't need to give any reasons to do what he wants to do. His life has certainly changed since his move from Vegas, and his health scare. People change. I get that. But it doesn't make me less sad.
Mikey was the one who gave me a shot. He let me be a guest blogger on his site and write a poker story. And then I was hooked. Without Mikey, there'd be no Very Josie. I've probably been reading him for over 4 years - way longer than all you guys :) and I don't take to change very well. Really, I don't. I'm barely over the fact that DP Cooper stopped blogging and I was only reading him for a couple of months.
And since I'm wallowing in my misery, let's go a little deeper.
I always, always, always wanted to meet Mikey. I've talked to him on the phone several times and we talked about meeting up in Vegas. And when I finally got to Vegas, Mikey wasn't there anymore. Missed him by a few months.
So me being a mathematical person, I am trying to determine how long it should take me to get over this.
4 years of reading = 4 days
His booming voice with a southern twang = additional 1 day
No one's ever gonna call me Sweet Mama again = addtional 1 day
In approximately 6 days I will be back to my bubbly self. See ya then.
