Games People Play



The Sleeper


I have a thing for big lizards. I do not have a thing for people without imagination. Every one of these children is me.

Dad would have been 66 yesterday. How to celebrate? Football. A long, speedy drive. Good times. Noodle salad. Dad was possibly the most uncomplicated person ever, and yet he was also complex. Complex people can be uncomplicated. You just let them do their thing.

Jeffie asked me today why people call him Jeffie. I should have said, "Because they like you." But the phone rang. I guess I'll start calling him Jeff, but when he's not within earshot, he's Jeffie. Because I like him.
