my mother-in-law the.....
(mugs for Jen Mecca by Gary Rith)
Trying to protect the innocent here, but my mother-in-law is a blast. She arrives from Kansas City today. She, um, has a boyfriend substantially younger than herself. They have been together a while, and travel the world together. And today, they come here. I am not one of those dudes who hates his mother-in-law, I one of those dudes who goes out to scruffy bars with his mother-in-law and has fun.
When she was here at Cornell as a student in the late 1940s she went to Joe's (which is STILL HERE) and racked up the rather substantial bill of 300 dollars. Returning home at Christmas and telling her dad she needed to pay the bar tab at Joe's (I mean, was the place mobbed up? Do you really ever let a tab like that go for long??????) her father looked at her coldly and told her she best find a job.
So, you know, tonight we go to Joe's.....etc.
Dig the Beastie Boys live. I think I need a Beastie's tee for back to school....
