I came home wired the other night, the way you do when you’ve just spent time with a girlfriend who “gets” you. I have a lot of girlfriends like that these days, whereas I once just had a few.
I’ve gotten better at getting “gotten.”
There were shopping bags on the floor. Maybe a few too many for someone who is filing for a tax…
It’s been about a month since my dad died. He would have been 85 today. We’d been planning a party; it turned into a memorial. At the reception, many people mentioned this story from The Middle Place. They said they do the Hello World routine with their children. I like to think of it, of him, carrying on in this way.
