A Scary Universe
Bernie takes a look at yestersday’s post. “Nudie Cohn and Abraham Lincoln showing up together on the same page?” he says. “How often does that happen?” He pours some more coffee. I like that smell, although water is my drink. “Imagine,” he says, “some alternate universe where Nudie Cohn and Lincoln actually meet each other.”
Alternate universe? This was new. Bernie talks about the universe a lot, galaxies, stars, and big big numbers, way more than two. Alternate universe? You tell me.
“Suppose, for example,” Bernie says, “that in this alternate universe Nudie Cohn sold Lincoln one of his suits, the Porter Wagoner kind, and Lincoln wore it when he gave the Gettysburg Address. Would history have been different?”
Bernie smacks his head. That hardly ever happens. “What am I talking about?” he says. “Let’s get to work, big guy.”
I’m at the door.
Note to C. Harris: Working away on book #3. Maybe a scene from it will get posted tomorrow.
