“So, terrible thing about the apartment, I guess, huh Julia?” I looked past the very tall lady standing at the counter who was being ignored by all salespeople, “How’s that?” I asked, wondering just what gossip these guys had been spreading about me. “Well, if the stove doesn’t work, I guess you’ll just have to […]

A few years ago my entire family (cousins too) got on the T together (a rare occasion indeed) and after pushing our way through the crowded subway stations and across the heart of Boston, we lined up outside a theater downtown. We had tickets to see Eddie Izzard. He is quite possibly one of the […]
