Waiting for my Vietnamese hoagies, with a bagful of goodies from Talluto's including a half-pound of their Mediterranean seafood salad. Is this a great country or what?
In Talluto's, the line filled the store -- you got to the back of it as you entered and shopped as you moved forward. One man wished the woman behind the counter "Merry Christmas."
"And a happy Hannukah," she replied.
Should I make an effort to write more clearly? Would it improve or degrade the quality of thought? Why didn't I ask these questions when I was young? At what point does a question become rhetorical?
[I'm pretty sure I meant to write "simply" rather than "clearly." But I simply wasn't clear enough.]
Followed by some notes for Dancing With Bears, which I was writing at the time . . . this would be when Darger and Surplus first hit Moscow:
D & S -- Darger goes underground.
D. understood cities
He needed to be unfindable -- and
BB & A talking
and listening "as ever"
