Mad Man

The day my wife finally left for good

citing reasons of incompatibility,

I calculated that I could binge-watch

every episode of Mad Men in one

72 hour sitting. So I drove to Walgreens,

purchased six 2-liter bottles of Coke,

three bags of Utz potato chips,

a carton of Lucky Strikes (no filters),

a 32-count box of XXL Fit-Flex

Maximum Absorbency Depend for Men,

and settled in for the long haul.
