I’m still completely floored about Clinton’s death. My heart is a big lump in my throat, and I start crying pretty much every time I begin to speak about it. I plan on writing a well thought out blog about my feelings around it all at some point. But for now, I just wanted to share this video with you guys.
Anyone who knows Clinton knows he loved to laugh and make jokes, pretty much all the time. Last year when he was staying with me he would occasionally break out into this fake American accent. It never failed to make me laugh. The accent itself is like a mixture between me, our friend Terrance (from Nashville), and Austin Powers. It’s classic.
Last year Clinton had a teacher who would call me (Clinton’s guardian at the time) “Prison Break” (because of my tattoos) behind my back. It bothered Clinton that the teacher would refer to me as “Prison Break” in front of the whole class and Clinton never failed to report each and every occurrence. Yeah, real professional on the teacher’s part, right?! Anyways, one night Clinton and I were playing around with my laptop and he started making videos and talking in his weird “American” accent, and at one point I could literally not breathe I was laughing so hard. I miss him so bad already.
The Youtube video’s jacked up, so if you’re on Facebook here’s a link to a better version.
