Circumstances have taught me that a man’s ethics are the only possessions he will take beyond the grave. It only took me six days. Same time it took the Lord to make the world. Mister Wayne, if you don’t want to tell me exactly what you’re doing, when I’m asked, I don’t have to lie. But don’t think of me as an idiot. Well, what is it today? More spelunking? Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane. Boxing is about respect. Getting it for yourself, and taking it away from the other guy. I once heard a wise man say there are no perfect men. Only perfect intentions. The man likes to play chess; let’s get him some rocks. Cities fall but they are rebuilt. Heroes die but they are remembered. I once heard a wise man say there are no perfect men. Only perfect intentions. Well, what is it today? More spelunking? I did the same thing to Gandhi, he didn’t eat for three weeks.
A few months ago, we found ridiculously cheap plane tickets for Boston and off we went. It was our first visit to the city and, believe it or not, Stockholm in February was more pleasant than Boston in March. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that we arrived completely unprepared. That I, in my converse and thin jacket, did not end up with pneumonia is honestly not even fair.
It was so cold that I wouldn’t even reach for my camera. I snapped more pictures with my phone than I did with my Canon. We stayed outside the city and ventured out to explore, but all those trips were cut short. Being inside and warm was just so much more appealing.
We mostly just ate. I dragged Lee and our friends across the city and back to get Ethiopian, Mexican, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese. The best ethnic food was the only research I did before going to Boston. I drank tanks of cider after discovering the Downeast variety. This stuff is incredible. They make it right in Boston too!
