Tony is in surgery today

He left me a message last night. I haven’t yet had a chance to visit him.



Tony in the hospital

August 20, 2011

Hi all,

He called me from the hospital a couple of hours ago. He was waiting to be admitted and expects to be there for a while. The next time I speak to him I’ll make sure he tells me why he’s there but I do know what he’s on an intravenous feeding tube. Meanwhile, he could really use a sandwich; he always feels  underfed when in hospital. I’ll try to see him tomorrow.

More when I know.


Oh brother, where art thou?

“I haven’t seen you around so much lately.”

“Well we’ve moved — you know that.”

“Phil, I don’t mean to sound stupid, but sometimes I move every night, if you  know what I mean.”


Literary criticism

“Did you hear that Rob Ford said he didn’t know who Margaret Atwood was? I mean, even I’ve know about Margaret Atwood.”
