Chetspeak On Sunday
The next time I opened my eyes, the sky was just starting to lighten in a milky sort of way, too soon for telling whether it was clear or cloudy. I looked across at Bernie. Sometimes I think you only see humans the way they really are from the side. Actually I’d never thought that before and wished I hadn’t now. I mean, what comes next? All I knew was I really liked Bernie’s face from the side; and the front, of course, goes without mentioning. As for what I could see? First, Bernie was real tired, his face pale except for dark patches under his eyes. Second, the eyes themselves were intense, like Bernie was wired about something. I sat right up. When Bernie’s wired, I’m wired.
He glanced over at me. “Sleeve of care all knitted back up, big guy?” he said, pretty much losing me from the get-go. I checked the sleeves of his shirt, saw nothing unusual.
