Postcard from the Edge: An Update from the Road
Hello, everybody! I certainly wish that you could all be here in cold, drizzly Hometown with me on this fine Thursday. Just to give you a sense of my activities since my arrival, I thought I'd jot you a quick note. Suffice it to say that I am currently operating on 3 hours of sleep (from 7AM to 10 AM), that I went to... six?.... bars last night, two of which were having their karaoke nights, that while we had every intention of making it an early night and we did get a ride home by midnight, Friend From High School and I then called another friend to pick us back up (after we'd eaten a fortifying greasy sandwich) to go to another bar, and we ended up in a limo (totally odd) with a lawyer and a chiropractor formerly known as cool boys in high school, after which we then watched a Tom Clancy Novel Movie in the lawyer's parents' basement. Oh, and did I mention that the whole Field of Dreams theory totally works (at least for a probably casual encounter), that the dry spell is over, and that "just right" in person is very, very easy to determine? Yeah, 'cause that's why I got no sleep. The summer is off to a rockin' start indeed, my friends, a rockin' start indeed.
