Me: "Did the girls say what they were going to do upstairs?"
My Sister: "It's not like there's anything much dangerous up there anyway."
20 seconds later, Violet hands me a tin of Goex Black Rifle Powder from the closet. "What's this?"
So awesome. (Also, don't worry John, ha ha.)
UPDATE: I want to note that I haven't been able to access the internet while in East Hampton, so I haven't been dead or ignoring you all or anything. The ancient cable hookup at my Gdad's wouldn't support nettiness. Strangely, there's also basically no cell coverage on that side of Georgica pond, which has been explained as NIMBY-ish unwillingness to allow cell towers. This seems insane to me as a) can't they just disguise them as trees or something and b) how can it possibly be that the masters of the universe types, who are continually landing at the EH airport in their private planes, are satisfied with this state of affairs? Or is there some reverse cachet in being unreachable specifically because you've been in the east-Georgica dead zone?
