Yes, it’s our proud reader of the month. Let’s call her, oh, “Bob.” As you can see, Bob is terribly proud of reading my blog nine times a day. She couldn’t wait to declare her love for this site in front of everyone in the Whole Foods at the plush ‘n attractive Time Warner Center. Yes, I took her out to dinner to celebrate. Of course, she had to pay for her own food.

By the way, if you look carefully, you can see at the table behind us a woman had decorated her small piece of Whole Paycheck with a framed photo, kind of like Kate Winslet sprucing up her shipboard accommodations with Picassos in Titanic. I know, I know, it’s shocking to realize that I’m the sanest person in New York but it can’t be Bob, naturally, because she reads The Jewball nine times a day.

Later, we stopped to ponder that eternal question: which is a quicker mode of transportation, city bus or horse & buggy? As you can see, it’s Mr. Ed by a neck. And that’s not even counting that horse manure is surely a finer scent than the average guy on the bus.

After our magical evening, Bob went home, as I was left alone to contemplate how I am truly the garbage bag in front of the Avery Fisher Hall of life.

    Whew. “Bob” isn’t me. I only read it about 3 times a day.

    Hey! I could be Bob’s twin. Well, not really but I do check your Blog 42 brazillion times a day.

    Come to NYC! I’ll take you out to dinner and let you pay for your own meal!

    I am totally stealing your reader of the month idea. There’s no patent pending, correct?

    Really?! I can pay for my own meal?! THANKS, MAGIC JEWBALL!

    The frame on the other person’s table is cracking me the hell up.

    Cranky, use it! Work it! Own it!

    Jan, even weirder, it actually had a picture of a guitar. It made me feel saner by the minute.
