My friend Paul calls and invites me to stay with him in the Hamptons this summer. Somehow, heís managed to find a cheap place with its own beach in East Quogue, which is a better Hampton (South) than the one we stayed in last time (West). East, of course, is the very best Hampton. Paul says that the place is falling down and uninsulated, but that shouldnít be a problem in the balmy summer. I think Iíll go for a couple of weeks, see how the other half lives. Maybe Iíll stop and see the house I grew up in.
