The Andersen Chronicles #24


Wake up with legs heavy from yesterday’s long distance running and resolve to return to bed after breakfast. Plug in headphones and doze off while Dough Stanhope euthanizes his mother and maxes out the dead woman’s credit card.

A short intermezzo around noon; shower and shave while waiting for pizza to be delivered.

Return to bed after eating, browse through audiobook library, find Eco’s ‘The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana’ and dive into a mist of lucid dreams as Yambo wakes up from his first stroke.

Hours later, a text message.

Q: Dinner?

A: Sorry, no – date with Umberto.
