Day 58–Back in Town but Under the Weather

A very slow day today. Both in the grip of la grippe.

Apart from a late dinner at the Deuce, Sandy worked a lot, I worked a little and we did little else but sleep and read.

Oh, I did the NYT crossword. When I asked the newsagent last Friday to hold Saturday’s IHT for me and gave him my name, he jokingly said, “Comme le militaire?” referring, in a surprisingly knowledgeable cross-cultural reference, to Ulysses S. Must have studied American history.
