Harry,

I have had one of the worst days of my life, but, honestly, by the time I read the second sentence, I forgot about Southeast Texas ... I was caught up .... trapped in Higgins world!

I couldn't take any more. The man was mad, he admitted as much he said he was obsessed. ... he was a victim of an addiction just as the girl in the story was. He lost himself in a novel! I remembered long ago when my father read me to sleep ... we would both get lost in the story. Then he would close the book and turn out the light ... he had my mother to go to. I was trapped in the story.

I don't know how you do it...I'm still laughing. Harry, this is a gem!!! Smile

I knew a man who stocked shelves in Fred's German Delicatessen. He was a lot like Bargain Ben in the story. I'd go in there in the morning to have a sandwich made up for lunch time later and he'd be reading some old dog-eared, thumb-soiled coverless book he'd probably read fifty times before. He'd look up with tear-brimmed eyes, then blow his nose violently in a paper napkin and ask me what I wanted for lunch ...
