The day I started writing this column I found out about Chef Anthony Bourdain passing away. I had to stop writing and find something else to do. I wanted to get my mind away from pondering what brought him to that point in his life to even consider something like taking his own life. I know we all have many things that we let live rent-free inside ours heads; however, I hope it never gets that bad for anyone close to me. I figure my demise will probably come from something silly, like being eaten by a gator or a flesh-eating infection after a barnacle scrape.
I never got to work with or even meet Chef Bourdain. If I had gotten to do either, that really would have been something to scratch off the old bucket list.
