Hey, How goes it? Long time no see, er, talk. Or whatever one can reasonably deem interpersonal communication to be in this post-modern, post-literate world. How are your folks? Dead? Yeah? Sorry. Shit happens, I guess. No one lives forever. How’s your job? Still getting paid every week, or was it bi-weekly? Can’t remember. You […]
