Dear Reader, Oh, what a week it has been! I missed our little conversations with you, truly. I’ve been running around Europe like a madman and people have been readily handing over Euros for my books. As much as I hate late capitalism, this part is really nice.
Fourteen drinks a week is not enough to keep a man alive. When my doctor asked me if I had more than fourteen drinks I responded of course not, thinking he meant per day. The doctor said, “Not in a day, in a week.” I was compelled to lie.
My favorite part of Switzerland is when you drive in and they pull you over and you have to pay €50 so you know what the visit is going to be like. You want to see our alps? They ain't free, buddy.

Love your work; that last sentence of "Botched Circumcision" will stay with me for a long, long time.
Augh! You are full of puns in this post, and I'm howling with laughter over it. It makes readers feel as though they're on your trip with you. Regarding your watch, do some wild color as that a plain watch band won't do it justice.Enjoy the rest of your trip and have safe travels.
Hilarious and wonderful.
I really love the watch!
The Solar Beat is fantastic!
