was said to me in a roomwith air in it.

I heard it, remembered it,and brought it to the show.

That is a gift.

I haven't even added anything.

It's like a catbringing a dead bird.

It's a treasure.

And it wasn't like this--it wasn't like,

"Peter, who's that singer,

"French-Canadian,I don't know, Salon Dijon?

"I don't know.What's her name? I don't know.

Salon, is that it?Salon Dijon? I don't know."

It wasn't like that.It was like this.

"Peter, your fathergot me tickets

Just an expensive mustard rinseof a performer.
