Fun and Exciting Times in the Carribean A recent email exchange from a fella who just got back from a trip to Haiti, where he was evaluating problems in medical Care.
LL: I am back in the states, safe and sound - attached is a gruesome picture B: I diagnose it as syphilis. Am I right? Welcome back. W: I'm guessing, um.....Yaws? Me: Wow..…. When do we get to meet the future Mrs. LL? LL: Anytime you're in Haiti i'd be happy to introduce you. She has a sister, but I hear she's ugly
Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
Two years ago I tried to read Ulysses. Got up to page 200 -- then everyone quit. Now, I am supposed to read Anna Karenina but this time there is a “deadline” in two weeks. I have already taken breaks and read The Truth with jokes, The Tipping Point, and Blink, since I started during X-mas. I am on page 350 -- don’t think I am going to make it.
I had trouble sleeping last night. I woke up last night at 3 and realized my room was too hot and dry. So I walked over to the window to let some air in. The windows bottom is about level with my chin which is about level with the sidewalk. I looked out before I opened the window and I saw rats. Three fat rats running down the street and one went into the pit below my window. I have seen a lot more rats recently, maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s the tworestaurants nearby, maybe its my neighbor who practically runs a youth hostile in his brownstone. I guess I need to get some rat traps.
