Today is Kate’s birthday. Kate is one of the greatest people I’ve run into since landing in la Grande Pomme - since college, actually - greater even than running smack-dab into a paper-mache toucan at the Boom Boom Room, which, coincidently, happened with the birthday girl. She’s an honest appraiser of character with a killer shoe collection, a fully stamped passport, and a merciless wit, and she qualified for Boston at her first marathon. How do I top that? No one can top that! Have a magnificent one, Miss Greer. You’re future’s so bright, you’ve just got to wear shades! Preferably expensive ones.
