Recent letter from old time and long lost art school friend, Bruce, aka Fang, and if there are living pirates, he’s one:
“Do you remember why we locked you in the bathroom that night?” He said I then squeezed out of the tiny, and thought to be painted shut, bathroom window employing shampoo lube and Houdini moves and found myself barefoot and freezing on a ten-inch ledge seven stories up. He says he and a couple other buddies watched from his window as I climbed a steep slate gable end onto the roof of the building and disappeared. My recollection of that same night is eating popcorn and watching Star Trek on French’s TV. He wasn’t home, so the door latch broke.
