Francesca recently read Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven, a short, sweet-sappy book which made Francesca cry. It is about a maintenance man who is suddenly killed in an accident, and the five people from his life who usher him into heaven, explaining the meaning of his life and clearing up mysteries.
It got Francesca thinking about those she would like to meet in such a way, those who could bring closure to some of the loose threads of Francesca’s life. The grandfather she never met, the jilting lover, the husband and children she does not yet have, and of course her boss, the esteemed Manolo, since then Francesca would finally find out who he really is. (It is true, Manolo is a mystery man even to those who work for him. The internet is a strange and exotic place.)
