“Where’d you read that, Cal, on the back of a matchbook?” I said. “Assuming you can read, that is.”

Why do I enjoy antagonizing people who can do me great harm? I must be a masochist.

Cal looked at the thug next to him, who stepped up and punched me in the face so hard that the chair I was sitting in turned over backwards and I went spilling onto the floor.

Yep. I’m a masochist…

    I have to say it Jake, you’re either a dumbass or you must be a masochist... but you’re a brave SOB, certainly. 🤕
