Like *a* medicine. Not in the general. In the specific. This is my fortune. I found it in my pocket. The pocket of the pants that I just washed, and yet it is in pretty good condition. Even though it has been a while since I went to Chinatown for dumplings.
It is good that I found something, since I've been losing lots of other stuff lately. The most recent loss is that of the book I was reading. I only had about 40 pages left. It wasn't a great book; it wasn't even especially good. It was an adequate book. But it was a book that I have already invested 300 pages worth of reading into, and damnit, I wanna know how it ends. It makes my heart unmerry. Which is like a bad medicine.
