...Country Life:

The UPS guy just arrived and delivered a package. "Dog's harmless," I called to him. "I know he is," he called back. "Hi, Alfie!" he said, and handed him a biscuit.  Then he said to me, while I took the package: "Saw you at Dunkin Donuts this morning but you drove away before I could give you the package."

Busted! Yes, I was at Dunkin Donuts this morning. I went to the dump and it was on the way and I was feeling inadequately coffee'ed.

Earlier, the rural mailman came.  (Actually, mailwoman, but that didn't look right when I typed it).  "I felt so bad when your tulips were blooming that you weren't here to see them," she said. "So I took a picture. I'll leave it in your mailbox tomorrow."

Today my daughter asked me why I was reading "The Paris Review Interviews." I said that I liked to 'listen' to the authors talk about their creative process.
Why? she asked, why not just read their books? Because, I said, after a pause, I want to know how they write their books.
Why? she asked again, the inquisitive look still on her face. Well...I said, somewhat embarrassed, maybe I want to write a book....when I grow up.
You'll be ahundred-yers-old, she replied with an impish laugh.
(The truth is: I read them--and this blog-- because I like their company)

You look at the emergency map on hotel doors? Me too! I also count the number of doors from my door to the stairs. If there's smoke and I can't see, somehow I'll count the doors and escape. I think I heard that tip long ago.
