Have a Great Weekend

It’s not every day that anyone can say that they’ve lived a comedy routine. I can say, with conviction, that I’ve lived a Bill Hicks routine, in my old hometown of Lewisville, Texas. Yes, I was asked “Whatchoo readin’ for?” at the local Denny’s, as I was eating dinner and perusing a book on pterosaurs. The difference was that I was being asked this by a local deputy, his hand on his firearm and just daring me to do something that might cause it to fall out accidentally and put five rounds between my eyes, shaking with anger that someone would dare read while eating in his town. But I’m told that I should be proud to have gone to high school there, and that I really should go to my class reunion to see that it wasn’t that bad.
