‘16 Tons’ by Tennessee Ernie Ford
Back to the salt mine tomorrow. Feeling blue after a week and a bit holiday…
Sitting in Viaduct Tavern near St. Paul’s having drink. A City Suit laughs a loud barking staccato laugh.
Parker: I hate laughs like that. It’s so obvious they work together and he really didn’t find that funny.
City Suit laughs again.
Parker: And they’re both wearing the same blue suit. Was there a two for one sale?
Nicole: After our holiday, I am going to start seriously dieting. I need to lose 40 pounds.
Parker: Are you going to start gambling?
Parker: Well, if you want to lose 40 pounds gambling is the fastest way to do it.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and hundreds of Yahoo employees took on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at Yahoo’s Sunnyvale, CA campus. Marissa challenged three amazing entrepreneurs: Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Square; Travis Kalanick of Uber; and, David Karp of Tumblr. http://www.alsa.org/donate
Me: I didn’t know you smoked!
Sasha: Only when I’m drinking. Which is most days.
Carrie is wearing a tiny slip of a dress.
Parker: Why is she wearing underwear in public? Is that what they do in New York?
* Parker sees the title of this post as I am writing. “I have a problem with this. I am not watching Sex In The City. You’re watching it and I am sitting next to you.”
Nicole and Parker sit in bed, drinking coffee, reading the paper on their tablets. Someone outside drives by blasting music.
Parker: No. Good god, no. They should be embarrassed they listen to that out loud.
The car drives away taking its driver’s musical sins with it.
Nicole opens Spotify and does a quick search finding:
She hits play and starts throwing shapes.
Parker shakes his head.
