friday doggerel

How does a late afternoon appointment with the eye doctor end up lasting more than two hours?  Two eye exams, five pairs of glasses to fit, and a mindbending encounter with the dreaded health care system… it would be funny except for the dubious pleasure of being proved right.  The headaches I have been having for the last couple of months every time I try to draw for more than an hour are indeed the result of another major change in my astigmatism– and it will be at least a week until my new glasses are finished.  Then, let the eyeball twisting begin.  It is a daunting prospect.  I am getting too old for this.

But even the worst astigmatism can be soothed by a Quesadilla Supreme (shredded beef) and a large margarita (rocks, no salt).  Add salsa and guacamole, and you might even find a first doggerel poem for the new notebook:

  •                                              Mexican Restaurant
  •                      Crust of crispy beans on the edges of a hot plate,
  •                      Well tequila, basketball
  •                      And the pattering of waiters speaking Spanish.
