Organ Recitals (Conversations With El Cap)

Me: So, you know, Shelly and I used to talk about going out and getting drinks, or how we were going to write the not-so-great Great American Novel, or hanging out.

El Cap: Yes?

Me: Yeah, today I called her and was all, “So, did your doctor ever tell you to take more than one Prilosec OTC a day?” and she was all, “My doctor told me to take Zantac three times a day.” When did we get old? How did this happen? Is it all downhill from here?

El Cap: Yes. It happens faster than you think. Also, remember, that’s called an “organ recital“.

We’re all just one alleged ulcer away from an organ recital…

I write. I take pictures. I love my dog. I love Florida. My 2016 book, 'Backroads of Paradise' did really well for the publisher and now I feel a ridiculous amount of pressure to finish the second book.
