Chauffeuring Pacino

I chauffeur this guy who talks like Al Pacino in one

of those scenes where Pacino wears glasses and

removes them for dramatic effect then says

something like, “I’ll see what I can do about it.”

Man, I could listen to this guy make deals on the

phone all day (unlike a certain Commander). At

times, I’m up in my head in public awhile and then

worry what if I’ve been saying some of what I’ve

been thinking aloud—so I dart my eyes around, no

one is looking at me sideways…at least not usually.
