In waiting room this morning after checking in.

Voice from around the corner:  “I try to stay away from watching the news.  I hate getting bad news.”

Me, because I couldn’t resist:  “I try to stay away from this place because I hate getting bad news.”

Ten minutes later at the gas station.  My back is to the person at the next pump.

Voice:  Gerry Brooks?

Me:  You recognize me by my ass?

Voice:  Yeah.  It’s not a bad ass.

Me:  You’re not a woman with a deep voice, are you?

Voice:  Nope.

I think it’s gonna be one of those weeks.  Just a feeling.


About Gerry

I've been covering Connecticut news and sports since 1974. I know, I don't look that old.

    It sure is going to be one of those weeks, but at least we are all still here. The infamous Gerry Brooks, I’ll reserve judgement on the topic at hand.
