"Give me what I want and I will go away." Stephen King, Storm of the Century
2. Neighbor W.'s rain gauge caught over 2.5 inches of rain yesterday. Most of it fell between 5 and 9 PM., just when I happened to be out driving. My windshield wipers were going full speed and large sprays of water rose up from my wheel wells. But I fretted not. The soothing voice of Dave Davies on NPR's Fresh Air spoke matter-of-factly inside the dark cabin of my car as he interviewed William H. Macy. I imagined a perfectly normal world going about its business somewhere.
