pass the biscuits, please
These subjects beg for large format: 1) The menu at George's. 2) The ceiling at George's. 3) The shrimp po-boy at George's. 4) Has anyone ever recommended to you the smoked catfish po-boy at Jay's BBQ? To me either. I will never stop recommending it now. 5) An oak in the rain on campus. 6) Further under that oak. 7) Under another.

I was talking with someone the other day about our respective writings and he mentioned a story I'd written of which I was particularly proud and then suddenly neither of us could remember the name of who it was about, and only just now remembered it was Andre Williams. I even met the guy in person while writing the story. How do you forget Andre Williams?
