A study in contrasts
November 8, 2007 § 7 Comments
A late night and a hangover to match. I nurse a second cup of coffee, which prods the appropriate receptors but ultimately fails to arouse. It will not be a productive day.
Instead, I read the papers, which report a litany of bad news: falling stocks, lost equity, homeless veterans, the energy crisis. As juxtaposition, a story about a $25,000 bowl of ice cream, garnished with edible gold.
If I wasn’t hungover, I would scream.
