"Is that a canasta score-keeper?" he asked. I don't have a door to my "office" so people barge in on me all the time. Mostly when I'm on the telephone and today while reading entries on this very website. He asked for some mailing labels although they were right in front of his face. I tore some off and then got back to reading. "That's hideous," he said. "It's from the 1950s," I replied, face looking straight at my computer screen. "Well, it's just god-awful." He's still talking. Was it rude of me to turn around and start typing this?
