Pump Up the Jam, Pump It Up

Tonight on the 6 train, the woman next to me asked her friend, "Remember my friend who flushed her pearls down the toilet?" My interest was piqued. Please continue. As it turns out, it was an accident that involved a pearl necklace with a faulty clasp and an automatically flushing toilet. Isn't that always the case? Anyway, from what I gathered, the necklace was never recovered. The conversation then switched to Rice Krispy treats, and surprisingly, I lost interest and decided to run across the platform and jump onto the express train.

Nothing much to report there. I wonder what would happen if I began emptying the contents of my purse onto the floor. They would get sticky- that's what would happen. And there would be no one to blame but myself, the irresponsible person who spilled their Hawaiian punch, and, of course, God.

that's the automatic, isn't it. calling oneself the "nut scrub salesman." no matter how many times one of your friends refers to himself in that manner, first, leighto2006(newno.), you will laugh, and second (guaranteed) the pilot light of hope deep in your soul will flicker. "Was that the real nut scrub salesman. Did he really happen upon my blog? Is he related to Luigi? (that mirror part is incredible)" Over time, the pilot will grow faint, impossibly faint for performing its inhernet task: lighting a burning, passionate fire. But that won't change the fact that its still there, the pilot I mean, with a cool, weakened glow hiding in the dark beneath the iron of a stove , still there. Something doesn't turn into nothing.

Anyways, leighto, i got to work early this morning and was going to read the wsj online. glad i didn't that would have been a waste of time. caught up on your blog instead. lots of love.

That was wise of you to get onto the subway before that elderly woman was able to get off.
