a few weeks ago i carried a lobster we caught from the beach back to my friend's house, which was less than a quarter mile from the shore. i was so anxious it would pinch me with its claws i could hardly breathe. but i made it to the house pinch-free with only one drop incident (sorry, little guy!). it's good to do things that scare you every now and again.
as for where i come from: i grew up in Southern California, spent some time abroad and in the Midwest and South; Boston was an unexpected addition to my address collection, and i guess that makes me an interlopah (as the nice lady from medford put it) ... that's cool, i'm ok being a Boston-interlopah. this is a great city.
