Old Friends

[Midday in Manhattan; Telephone call between Yorkville and Tribeca*] 

Me: You’ve never seen Infamous?

Fossil Darling: I’ve never seen Infamous. Do you have it?

Me: Of course.

FD: Then I’ll borrow it from you.

Me: Sorry; I don’t lend books or DVDs anymore.

FD: You lend them to me.

Me: You can come over here and watch it. We’ll have popcorn.

FD: I don’t want to spend that much time with you.

Me: You admit it!

    There is nothing quite like the repartee between dear friends, dear old friends to lighten the day, especially yesterday when the mood on the desk here was somewhere between cantankerous and rotten.

    And I would never think of mentioning LXIV’s generosity in lending DVDs…..of course I wouldn’t.

    For some reason the infamous New Year’s Eve at Pourover came to me in a flash, with our deathless rendition of “We’ll Always Be Bosom Buddies…..” HAH!
