OR "IS HE MY DAD'S FRIEND?"OR WHATEVER.

I WAS CHECKING INTO A HOTEL INCHICAGO ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS AGO,

AND AS I'M CHECKING IN,THE GUY BEHIND THE COUNTER

IS GIVING ME THE HAIRY EYEBALLTHE ENTIRE TIME.

"NORMALLY, I DON'T ASK PEOPLEWHERE I KNOW THEM FROM

'CAUSE I HAD SOMETHINGREALLY HORRIBLE HAPPEN."
