I made a new friend. I actually met her through my books, which she discovered at Tippy Toes in Galveston. And guess what? She’s from Tarragona and spent a decade living in Barcelona. So today she came by and brought a treat we both missed: Vermut, though obviously not the homemade one we used to drink in bars in Barcelona, olives stuffed with anchovies, and even the type of glasses one drinks Vermut out of in said bars. We talked a lot a lot a lot.
In the evening I went to see Bobby and Nancy. I walked both of them to a nearby bar where John was waiting for us. It was super intense! They’re big and strong, but I guess so am I.
