In Other News

It was Strunk's birthday last night. Rogan Josh, Éclaire and I gathered at our house to toast him and take him out to dinner. The toasting portion of the evening ….well, perhaps I should just repeat here something I thought it important enough to scribble down on the back of a receipt between courses: "Objectively, this is quite tasty, well-prepared food. Subjectively, only acute concentration on the portion of the tablecloth falling within my line of sight will keep the room from spinning." Perhaps next time, two bottles of wine after dinner, or two bottles of wine during dinner, but not, I think, two bottles of wine before dinner. Did I say bottles? I meant magnums.
