2. Just typed a letter for my boss. Cheatham is such a great name for a lawyer...
3. Last week, mabfan lost his mother. The funeral was yesterday. He and gnomi were surprised at how many people showed up. We were not.
4. There was snow last night in NYC. This meant I had to scrape off the snow and ice from the car I'd rented so I could return it. I was pushed semi-effectually at the stuff with my gloved hands because rental cars do NOT have scrapers, and I happened to say this to a neighbor.
He gave me a scraper. "Here. Present for you!" in a thick accent. Human genorosity is a marvelous thing.
