I Was There The Day Michael Jackson Bought This At The Mall.


One Saturday five years ago I was waiting tables at TGI Fridays at the upscale Aventura Mall in Miami when the whole place exploded. People were running full speed from every store, helicopters were circling, and time seemed to stop.

Michael Jackson was shopping with a friend.

The restaurant had full length windows along the section of the mall leading to the door that he used to come in and out, so we got to see him in person. The local news reported his purchases on the evening news.

He bought the Green Goblin statue that I had been wishing I could afford. I was glad it finally found a good home.

Life is like a bunch of small bubbles dancing under water. When we die, we pop to the surface and rejoin the big air above. Enjoy the greater self Michael. Thanks for the music.
