Pete

Let us not forget the proverb detailing the man who learned to speak by putting rocks in his mouth. I tried desperately to convey the wisdom of this tale to Pete, but he seemed perfectly content to simply watch the static on the muted television set.

"It kind of matches the music," he told me.

I suppose he was right in a perfectly strange way. That was the thing about Pete, he always made such delightfully astute observations. The ectoplasmic stench of the couch was getting to me and so I ventured toward the submissive arbiter of alchohol for renewal of my sedative. All that it needed to pay up was a good hand job, just like everybody else.

"Much safer than drinking corn syrup," he said as I got up.
