Once upon a time, I was born. Things happened pretty slowly. Eventually, I got a little older and went to high school. There, I met a lot of nice folks, but then I graduated and lost contact with most of them. Then a whole lot of stuff happened in what appears like an out-of-focus blur looking back on it. Now, I'm quite a bit older. Recently, I've gotten back in touch with some of those swell high school folks. This will no doubt help me live happily ever after.

By the way, the next time someone tells you they have a headache, say to them, "That's impossible! Pain can't exist in a vacuum!"
See ya in the funny papers! That's what
the ice cream man used to say to us as he got back in his truck to drive
to the next group of summer-loving, fun-faced kids.
