Harry Chapin – Taxi
And she said, “How are you, Harry?”
I said, “How are you, Sue?”
Through the too many miles
and the too little smiles
I still remember you.
— Harry Chapin, Taxi (Heads and Tails, 1972)
The court papers show her birthday as July 22, 1955. Have I had it wrong for the last 35 years? I really don’t think so.

Mrs. Brown’s lovely daughter

For her birthday I am declaring her strip poker debt forgiven. I will not be showing up on her doorstep to collect on it. The time for that was 33 years ago and I missed my chance. Besides, I lost the original IOU long ago.
