This is just to say

that I have no clever plans to spoof William Carlos Williams, like, say, Kenneth Koch once did.

But I wanted to mention that Lucy got me out of bed at 11:14 p.m. from a deep sleep because she needed a drink of water, and wanted me "to check her to see if she needed medicine." I decided that some benadryl was in order. I wasn't being cruel either. I think she has allergies, and in my sleepy state I was unsure if I could give her Claritin.

Anyway, an hour and fifteen minutes later she is soundly asleep and I am not.

I could post about a variety of things, like the chummy visit I had with the neuro and two Pharmacy interns today, or the bad name that Henry called me when I got frustrated with him for removing all of the batteries from their packaging and scattering them throughout the junk drawer, or how I briefly considered giving up coffee because of its potential effect on my headaches. But I think I should just try to go to sleep.

AAACCCKKKKK! Not giving up coffee!!!

Does "chummy" mean good when referring to a meeting with a neurologist?

Get some sleep!

I gave up coffee once -- it's actually only unpleasant for a few days. Give it a try if you think it'll help!

I'm dying to know what the ugly name was that Henry called you! How bad does it get these days with kids his age?

Are we talking "doo-doo head" or "fuckin' BEE-yotch"?

I spend all day around "grown-ups" (quote marks intended) involved in politics. I have no concept of propriety anymore.
