the morning after the morning after

And they're off! Team Providence split about 1:00 pm, driving their car and my truck. Yes, that's a frickin futon on top. Why do people buy these things? You can't sleep on them, they are bulky and they get pretty nasty in the fullness of time. However, the three will be glad of it tonight, if a little tight. In the time it took me to walk back from the corner, both of their parking spaces had been snapped up. Ah, New Yawk. I sent most of the party food with them, so for now I subsist on beer and celery sticks. However, I have laid in butter and sugar, for in the Casa Claudia tradition of not letting a bed cool between occupants, Angelina and her adopted teenager will be arriving tonight. Trust me, that's not a non sequitur. I mean, the butter and sugar and Angelina's arrival.

Hey, I recognize that futon..I mean I moved one around in the back of trucks, on top of cars, through alleyways and onto floors. Finally after I was 50 I gave it to my nephew who now keeps the tradition going...

Ashbury Street is now graced with TWO futons on the street awaiting new homes.

We have this bedbug thing happening in NYC. NOBODY would pick up a futon on the street anymore.
