This fish is 31 years old.

That is, a year younger than me.
He lives in a restaurant near my house and eats carrots.
The place is called Bahooka and is a good joint to go to for a flaming cocktail and a yam.


Today, in the casino, was the first time I have ever heard someone say the word "Goomba" in real life. (As an actual form of address, too, not just describing the name of his clever new search engine startup) Marvelously, this man also says "youse" and "fuhgeddaboutit" and talks about the old days in Atlantic City.

Off at the adjacent table, the theme from "The Godfather" played as some Chinese punk gambler's ringtone.
