Pay No Attention to the Joy Behind the Curtain . . . .



It's been a long travel day, capped by a great meeting with people with whom I am so excited to be working. Later in the evening something ended and something began and it's not my intention to be cryptic; it's just that sometimes it's got to be OK to let a drawing carry the thousand-word load . . .

How was everyone's Memorial Day weekend? Mine was really, really nice . . . for the most part . . .

This one is extra cryptic for me because the drawing won't come up. (that's what my last date ...) So I am forced to imagine what on earth you could be talking about. It reminds me of the previous "Sports Metaphors" entry in which I understood only two percent of what you wrote. No defense, but I don't understand sports talk.

Huh. Probably because it's a j-peg. I'll send you a copy. Good to know . . . it's all so strange and new . . .

Thanks! And now I can see it on your website. Obviously you've been offered a job as the Sun. Congratulations! (I hope you can handle the long hours!)

Now could you send me a translation of "Sports Metaphors?" In particular "bottom of the 16th" and "8th inning tie." Thanks.

"Bottom of the 16th"=the second half of the 7th period of an overtime game. Also, the derriere of a Catholic child who was born LONG after the oldest child. Frequently, his family doesn't even know his name.

"8th inning tie"=the neck ornament worn during the 8th period of a baseball game. Traditionally, wider than the previous neckties and striped.

I know a lot about baseball and soon you will too, Jonny . . .
