I shoulda known as soon as I walked in the joint. Tommy on the bar
handed me a drink and said it was from the fella at the other end of
the bar. I took it. I shouldn't'a took it.
He walked over.
Classy, too, you could tell with a look he was full frequency. 88.1 to
107.9, that was him. Told me his name was Phillps. Philips Digital FM Transmitter.
I laughed at that and he asked me why. I said "Pal, I don't care who
you are, I don't need a fake name." He laughed but didn't sit down. I
pretended I didn't see his wedding ring.
Before long I had a
little stack of glasses in front of me and Phillips was leaning in
close. I ran my fingers over his three preset buttons in the dark. He
said he had a car nearby. I said "Sure, why not?"
different when we got in. You always hear about those guys that are
"instant on, auto off", and you laugh because you've never met one in
person. But I wasn't laughing then. He told me he could override the
car's stereo tuner for instant plug and play. I said "Hey, wait a
minute!" but he was charged. I guess it was the cigarette adapter that
I pulled open the door and spilled out onto the cement sidewalk. Mr. Philips Digital FM Transmitter was right behind me. I barely got a finger in my purse when it went off. The .38 that used to belong to my dad.
looked down at his chest like he couldn't believe it. I knew his 90 day
manufacturer's warranty wouldn't cover something like this. He fell
back into the car and I just sat there, catching my breath, feeling
like nothing was real.
The cops said I did the right thing
and that nobody was gettin' charged with nothin'. But I still get the
shakes sometimes. The Philips Digital FM Transmitter worked with iPods, Zunes, CD Players, heck, anything that used a 3.5mm stereo mini jack. What if one of them... wanted revenge?

There are those who say that a mysterious creature has survived for
centuries in the dark and frigid waters of Loch Ness, largely
unobserved by man. It lives at depths we cannot penetrate, and surfaces
only rarely, for the most fleeting of moments. Some who see the
creature doubt their own eyes--could that have been a log? A wake? A
school of herring? The wind playing on the surface? Still others--those
who are sure of what they've witnessed--decline to offer testimony
before a mocking, incredulous public. In private, when asked about the
monster they've seen, they'll say only: "Awww, so cute!"

From the journals of the pioneers who opened up the Oregon Territory for Pinot Noir cultivation:
Clear cold morning, took Birch pills for sickness before local Indian
guide told me they bring up one's breakfast, guide was Right - spent a
wearying day crouch'd beside the creek. Word reaches camp that Oregon
State University submitted an Article claiming the terroir was most
unsuitable for Pinot Noir cultivation - men much Aggrieved. It seems as
tho' this sojourn will Never end and I begin to Despair.
Some Rain in morning - chased a catamount out of camp last Eve. with
terrific commotion. Continued walking by day - passed the Journey in
reveries of Pinot Noir raptures Yet to Come. Decided I shall call my
vineyard Amity, a stout and hardy Name of good cheer. Lost but 3 men to
dysentery to-day - the State of things must be Improving.
Entered the broad Sweep of the Willamette Valley. Devoted more Thought
to the character of the Pinot Noir wine I aim to Cultivate - conceiv'd
or dreamt as follows: Amity 2005 Winemaker's Reserve Pinot Noir.
Dry-farm'd, gentle destemmer leaving Ninety per-Cent whole berries
intact, three different yeasts - hence, a Fruit-Driven complex wine. I
am Confident that this green and pleasant Valley shall become the
pre-Eminent district for Pinot Noir cultivation the World over.
More damn'd rain, cold. Party sought succor in Cavern - alas, so did
bear in great numbers. Much ballyhoo and Excited firing of pistols.
Lost 8 men and 5 bears, which we roasted over an open fire. The bears,
I mean. Thought much on two further Pinot Noirs - the Future beckons! -
Amity 2006 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with complex Nose of
rasp-berry, blackcherry, and earth, & spice. Smooth, soft. My fancy
turned with great Relief to a lighter matter - Amity 2006 Willamette
Valley Pinot Blanc - quintessential PB on nose - melon, mineral, a wisp
of the tropics - round, Smooth mouth. I humbly beseech the Creator to
bestow such a bounty upon Myself and this noble Land. Also - could use
some Help with my Ringworm while you're At it. Itches like devil.
Pinot Noir in view! O the joy!
