The retiring journalist is holding court. She's going to continue to write, she's known nothing but writing since she was eighteen.
She looks at me.
She says she's going to write something funny.
I am not sure whether she's ever written anything funny. Or how difficult it would be to start writing funny stuff in your later years if you never have before.
I don't know why she looked at me. I've never said anything funny to her. And she's never seen any of my writing.
Maybe she thinks I appreciate funny writing.
I do. But it's got to be funny.
