Have you read "Summertime" from Devil's Notebook yet?
Just read it the other night. Still trying to assimilate it.
If you have, what do you think of it?
It reminds me of the time a couple of my friends were heading through Columbus, Georgia--my previous hometown--on their way to Daytona, Florida, road tripping.
I, of course, showed them a few of my haunts, and in need of a room, kindly put them up in the Candlelight Inn.
I don't think any of us will forget the smell of must, sex, and ruined lives as we entered their room for the night. Mabye even a trace of vomit?
Happily, I was cozy in my barracks. Nice and tidy.
