PILLOW TALK
Last Sunday afternoon and I was sitting in my neighborhood bar that doubles as a coffee house that doubles as a bike shop and I got a text from Adrienne suggesting an April's joke. "What if you got arrested by the FBI?" she asked. "Or you went back to work at KPMG?" It was an interesting idea but since I hadn't even *considered* breaking any federal laws for several years, making up a yarn that I was returning to my old firm seemed just believable enough. Adrienne's still bent out of shape about how well it worked.
