A few things about me

February 2, 2015

OK, well, it's a thing going around Facebook, to list a few things most people don't know about them.

1) I've been to 49 states. I like to say the missing one is New Jersey but it's Alaska.
2) My NYC apartment is an old-style tenement with a tub in the kitchen and no stove.
3) I once told "walked into a bar" jokes at CBGBs. I am NOT a standup comic.
4) I fixed E.B. White's wife's shoes when I was an apprentice cobbler in Ellsworth, Maine.
5) My only sports trophy was for "guttermouth queen." Unless a spelling trophy counts.

    I was possibly the worst cobbler in the history of the world. Or second worst, in case you think I'm bragging. When I moved to NYC & realized I would rather lie down in front of a moving bus than ever pick up an awl again, that was when my life began.
