UnGreat Expectations


Dr. G. & I chat over cheese-drizzled rolls
stuffed with fresh avocado. “I didn’t realize
you hadn’t eaten here before! ” at San Jose's
Cypress St. Senior Citizens’ Center. Me:
“No, I hadn’t; I just assumed it would be
the worst cafeteria food, but it isn’t.”

Dr. G.: “It’s a well-balanced meal.” Me:
“Yes, it is; I was wrong. Have I told you
about my 10p tea-times with Scottish
Schizophrenics in Dundee’s city-centre? ”
Dr. G.: “Yes. Many times. Great stories.”
Me: “Well, I enjoyed every one of them.”

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
