My mind sails and cascades backwards several years
to a news report I heard
explaining how a scientific study
had discovered trace amounts of jet fuel
showing up in women's breast milk.
I have never called them 'breast' again.
And THE JETS are my favorite football team...
Whatever 'football' is.
When Julie ordered a margarita
I specified to the server to please "hold the bat"
to which he explained
the picture on their menu more in-depthly...
He pointed out
how the guy seems to be leaning into the bats swing...
"Oh, he is self-destructive" I pointed out.
"Please hold the bat" I re-stated.
