Re: Maundy Thursday
I was eating lunch yesterday in our Laguna Beach cottage when I heard a knock at the door. I went to see who might be visiting unannounced at this time of day and found a nice young man who introduced himself as Miles. He is working for the Hans Keirstead campaign to replace you in the House of Representatives.
Now, I’m interested in replacing you, of course, and completely forgot that I’d left my lunch on the table, unprotected from our King Charles Spaniel, Jake, who has an appetite you wouldn’t believe and no conscience whatsoever about stealing other people’s food. Engrossed in conversation, I was suddenly aware that my lunch—a chunk of cheddar cheese, a piece of toast and a half avocado—was being attacked by the insatiable Jake.
Ah well. I chased him off and returned to my conversation with Miles. I have not yet decided on who is the best of the Democratic candidates and am concerned, as I told my visitor, that they might form a circular firing squad—as I’m sure you may be hoping. But you can be sure that I’ll be supporting one of them with my voice, such money as I can afford, and my vote in the primaries.
Anyway, I thought my dog story might amuse you on this Maundy Thursday. That’s the day before Good Friday for the Church of England. Not sure whether anyone even heard of it over hear.
Wishing you and your family the happiest of Easters,
Peter Clothier, Ph.D.
