1- A routine doctor's visit, but since it wasn't with my usual doctor I had to answer some basic questions as she read through my chart. "Let's see," she said. "You're forty ... what?"
"Actually, I'm 51," I replied.
She looked up. "I would have never guessed that in a million years."
And I thought: I really, really like her.
(And I also thought: This forty-something fifty-one year old still needs to get new glasses.)
2- The colors, the patina ... pottery perfection somewhere in Tuscany.
3- Black and white, stark contrast ... drama somewhere in my dining room.
4- Pizza on the canal. The Grand Canal, that is. In Venice.
5- Grammar ... you have to be thorough, but it can be rough.
6- Top to Bottom, Bottom to Top ...
