Deepest, darkest secrets ...

Recently Chuck was going through my books, trying to find a novel that isn't set in New York. The deeper he dug, the more he found novels set in New York, that typically featured a writer as the protagonist.

I stood there a little embarrassed as he told me about this. It was like he had opened my notebook to find "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" scrawled in cursive on every page.

Yes, but Jack had his own make believe bartender, something that I aspire towards in life.

I'm reading "Heat Lightning" by John Sandford, and Duluth gets a passing mention in the book.

I'd rather he opened your notebook and found "All work and no play makes Homer something, something."

And then Chuck would say "go crazy?" And then you'd say "Don't mind if I do!"

I really need to watch less of The Simpsons and more of the news.

At one point, I gave up and tried to find a book that didn't mention Manhattan on the first page.
