Deb and I were in the bar enjoying a quiet drink (or three), and catching up on all the things one doesn't say in emails and texts. I was facing this pillar, and sometime halfway into my second drink, I realized that I wasn't looking at the pattern of the stone as a pattern in the stone, I was seeing medical imagery, probably because I have had to look at a lot of MRIs, PET scans and CAT scans in the course of some of the work I've done.
Anyway, the more I looked and the more I contemplated, the more the image resolved itself into...well, look at it. And just as Deb was working her way into a really good diatribe, I leaned over and said softly, "Look. Look. It's a giant..."
And Deb looked and I more or less lost her under the table, as she sobbed with hysterical laughter into her napkin.
When she finished, I asked primly, "Now, what were you saying about...?"
It was that kind of weekend. Gods know, both of us needed it.
