All things counter, original, spare and strange in Khujand, Tajikistan


Here’s Mike posing with a magic wand a kid left lying around.  Here’s me moments after the above picture was taken:

Fortunately I got better.  I love Mike.  The other day I was wearing my t-shirt with the kid eating ice cream with a monster.  Mike asked what kind of monster it was.

“A friendly yellow monster,” I replied.

“A friendly yellow monster, is it?” he said, and the way he said it made me really happy.  You try saying “friendly yellow monster” in a rich, rolling lowlands baritone.  It is absolutely delicious.

Mike leads both an Alcoholics Anonymous group and a Narcotics Anonymous group.  That guy has been places.   He made lasagna for everyone yesterday.  That Mike.  He’s just a good guy, ya know?
