Good morning. On the 7:15AM into the the City. The NFI is one.

I wanted to wear my Fez today. I didn’t. I thought about it, but realized that it wasn’t a day for Fez. Fez is for days of respite. For contemplation. For special occasion. Today wasn’t quite there

Handsome and pretty people just boarded. The guy in front of me looks like the assistant principal from the Breakfast Club. He has a size 15 shoe (and you know what that means), a dated striped shirt, and blue jeans. He’s staring at a spreadsheet- probably financial data. Oh, he’s got his pistol holstered under his black coat. Dammit man, at least wear a proper jacket! Meh.

Chuck Norris is here. Also in jeans and wearing alligator-leather boots, Chuck’s black leather jacket that he took from the set of…  oh, just pick one…hangs from his surprisingly broad shoulders. The goatee needs trimming. His mullet is exquisite, combed back so as to hang lazily off of the back of his neck. He is of course armed. His karate must be getting rusty.

Congressman Dick Gephardt is here. His still-ginger hair looks thick and well maintained. If it is a toupee, it’s a great look for the aging former Presidential Candidate. He must be visiting family, because I know plumbing contractors that dress better than a robin-egg blue colored sweater and khaki slacks. His. 22 must be in an ankle holster.

Also here are Genevieve Gorder, Boris Yeltsin, Grant Imahara from Mythbusters, Congressman Patrick Kennedy, and Larry David. All are armed.

Happy Friday.
