To: Debbie
Greetings my dear. Thinking of you and a pair of bowling shoes and the fact that you came back to the Blue Crystal on Decatur Street in New Orleans at 3:00 in the morning. You said you had to take your friends home and that you would be back. I thought for sure that I would never see you again. You came back just like you said and you keep coming back every day for 15 years. We took it to the brink and almost watched it fizzle and die but there was no luck involved. You wanted it and I wanted it deep down and now it is paying off. I can't wait to cave with you again in Toronto at the Rock Paper Scissors World Championships. Room service and $12.00 cigarettes and those lovely Canadians with pictures of people skating on their 5 dollar bills. I love you to death but you know, I will beat you at the tourney. Always lead with rock, Meaty
