Bath Time

It’s time to wash the monkeys.

Second Saturday of the month.

I know it should be more often

but I just can’t and neither can they.

Two, there are two of them

which is one more than

anyone needs. No, they don’t

keep each other company.

Everyone says that but it’s not true.

Gluskap and Malsum.

No, they came with

other names. Bunny and Hop.

Cute?

Have you ever bathed a monkey?

Well then don’t… You

don’t know. You don’t know the half

of it. You have what? A dog?

If I tell you I’m fluent in

Cantonese will you tell me

you spent a semester in France?

I have to go.

I have to run their bath.

Excuse me.

LEONARD QUART: A New York Sunday

Thursday, Jul 20 - It's also a way of spending some hours not thinking or talking about the monstrous narcissist and sleaze who offers us a compulsive lie and vicious tweet almost every day.

Eulogy for my friend Kurt Kruger

Thursday, Jul 20 - The fact is I probably talked to Kurt more than anyone else in my life. And those conversations took place over coffee for an hour or two almost every single day of our lives in recent years.
