Tail of the Unexpected

Popped over to Soho last night to pick up some practically perfect theater tickets, as we'll want to entertain our upcoming house guest in the most delightful way.

Box office was closed. Undaunted, we headed over to Robot Street for "just the one." As we were finishing our second and discussing dinner plans, who should walk by but our old pal Benjy.

"I'm off to the loo, but come join us in the corner. You must meet our new friend."

Not wanting to be rude, I ordered another round and headed to the alcove, where I made the acquaintance of Monica, the tranny hooker who had us in stiches (as opposed to Stiges, where'd I rather be) for the better part of the next hour.

Who'd have thunk it? I've been bordering on the edge of the dark place for a few days now, and on a whim, ended up having unexpected laughs with new characters and pleasant conversation with people who are turning out to be real friends. And a little ribald humor to boot.

There *is* life outside your apartment flat. I guess I'll stick around awhile ... well at least till Thursday when I go to Frankfurt.
