Over and Under

After the most recent storm I put a towel on a chair to dry and now I can’t move it. He loves to sleep on it, he loves to sleep below it. I’m a prisoner to that towel.

I just read a recent New York Magazine article about Anna Nicole Smith. I am not even particularly interested in Anna Nicole Smith, but something grabbed me and the article was so well done I couldn’t stop reading. The writer is just that kind of writer, and her story is can’t-look-away sad.

  1. But look how happy the towel makes him!
    That is SO weird–just read that Anna Nicole Smith article in NY Mag last night. You’re exactly right–I couldn’t stop reading it. I never knew much about her but had no idea so much of her story was so tragic. I still say she earned at least part of his money after being married to “Paw Paw.”

  2. I agree completely, although I wish she had been kinder to him on their wedding day, and on his last visit. She was definitely a damaged human being who was severely empathy-challenged.
