On how to be Human

Racquetball was just as fun as I remembered it. Unfortunately when you use parts of your body you haven't used in many years, the aches and pains can be considerable.

I'm sure we'll do it again though.

On the drive over I skimmed the copy of the rules that came with my new racket. "When a player makes a good hit, be sure to compliment him or her."

Which prompted the comment: What is this? Racquetball tips for sociopaths?

For the rest of the game we kept coming up with other tips for sociopaths. The subject really deserves its own series of books. Workplace tips for sociopaths, Sustainable gardening for sociopaths...

Gardens aren't just for hiding the evidence! A concealed weapons permit does not give you permission to shoot the boss!

That sort of thing.

If you happen to be in or around Seattle, Elliott Bay Book Co. is moving from its Pioneer Square location up to Capitol Hill. All used books are 80% off. If you are not good at math that means the books are practically free. If you are a sociopath I will put it like this: if a book was a body, you would only have to pay for the feet.
