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.
