I live with a stigma, 'tis...um...

Well, I figured out why I've been squinting to read lately. Today, I had my first eye exam since elementary school. Afterwards, a young pretty woman took me to a wall of potential frames for my new eyeware. She asked me what I had in mind. I thought for a moment. "Do you know Allen Ginsberg?" I said. "The poet?" She looked at me very seriously, shaking her head slowly in regret.

I vote you go with wraparound gucci sunglasses, which you can don during readings and in dimly lit bars and the like, only adding to your mystique.

i am still planning to cover your book tour in july, though i need to win some loot so i can afford to buy a new fancy camera.
