Lunch with Gullet and Jim at the
smarmy little Mexican place
and I used to go. I mentioned that, and Gullet said Oh, sweetie, I’m sorry. but then he saw I was smiling, and took it back.
Heavy burritos, bursting with good stuff. Gullet sat on my side of the booth and poked me in the side and in the back and
in the ass
. I’m not going to stop poking you until you can guess what I want. I got up and we played
warm . . . warmer . . . no, colder
until I figured out it was a straw.
Jim is moving
and only wants to talk about the
, which is cool because of the way he tells it. Jim is a little elf and he gets all eloquent and his hands go all over the place when he talks about things he likes. When he talks about his wife I’m afraid he’s going to hit the guy in the booth behind him.

the junky side of Chicago
. See how the bricks are all crumbling out of the tops of the arches and you just know they’re going to splatter
some poor old lady on the sidewalk
way down below. I’ll be right back sweetie I have to answer that goddamn phone.
I always forget how much I adore Gullet and then I remember it again every time we are in the same room.
I like it!
