Wrong Side


Well, sir, it's cold. I knew that. Of course they're all driving on the wrong side of the road and I expected that, too. I mean, I've been here. Every exchange attempting to settle a bill leaves me holding out a few notes and all the change from my pocket. Sometimes Kate helps me. The fact that all attempts to settle in quickly become Monty Python episodes will keep me humble forever. I may be hit by a bus from the right at any moment. I can't become one of them until I have a bank account. I can't get a bank account without presenting a utility bill. I can't open a utility account if I don't have a bank account to pay my utility bill.

Stay tuned. I'm nothing if not tenacious. Sorry.

Give us peace on earth and end this dreadful, dreadful war.
