He keeps a little notebook in the bathroom. I'm tempted to open it, but think he may be testing if he can trust me, so I don't. I suspect he's placed a speck of dust somewhere in the notebook, so if I open it, he'll know I've invaded his privacy.

I decide to ask: "What's with the notebook in the bathroom?"

"Oh, that? That's my Boomer Book," he says. "I keep a daily log, so to speak, of my ... boomers."

I don't know whether to take him seriously or not, so I choose not to. But I can't help wondering.
