A New Crack In Town
Though lovers be lost love shall not; And death shall have no dominion.
kisses are a better fate than wisdom.
~E. E. Cummings
1. Fall At Your Feet
Amid the chaos of that day, when all I could hear was the thunder of gunshots, and all I could smell was the violence in the air, I look back and am amazed that my thoughts were so clear and true, that three words went through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool. And sometimes Clarence asks me what I would have done if he had died, if that bullet had been two inches more to the left. To this, I always smile, as if I'm not going to satisfy him with a response. But I always do. I tell him of how I would want to die, but that the anguish and the want of death would fade like the stars at dawn, and that things would be much as they are now. Perhaps. Except maybe I wouldn't have named our son Elvis.
The F-n-G summer continues with out a hitch. I almost got an F and a G in on the same day. But I settled for a nice short 9 holes on Sunday with the man that got me blogging, Rich. Met up with another blogger (Ashburnite) for sushi at Pauli Moto's in Tysons on Friday. I wasn't terribly impressed with the decor or lay out of Moto's but there just may be a new version of an old crack. The Cream Cheese Crab Sprng Roll, yuuuuuuuuuuummmmm! Served with an Orange Marmalade sauce. Holy crap are those suckers good! My first ever foray in to the mixture of sweet and savory that I can remember was mozarella sticks and raspberry sauce. I remember looking at my cousin Dena like she was crazy. But decided to trust her judgment as she had a vast knowledge of hotel room service. (Uncle I is in the biz) To my delight it was one of the greatest mixtures of unlikely tandems I had ever tasted. I didn't give Moto's the full work out, nibbling only on some Philly rolls, edamame and the afformentioned New Crack in town.
It was a full weekend to say the least, and a mini-crush was slightly rekindled. Every time I hang out with TBB I have a great time. It is rare that we hang out as she is a friend of a friend, and it had been a while since the last time. I figured out what really drives the crush though, not that she is a great looking girl although that helps, but because it's non-stop laughter every time we hang out, and we share the same wicked sense of humor. Ladies if you wanna pull at my heart strings a lil' just be, sarcastic, mocking, and gregarious. Gets me everytime.
