This nightmare won’t last forever; that man will leave my table soon; oh as I write these words he gets up and leaves! And then, 5 minutes later, he comes back. Scheisse. 145pm. My beer going down slowly today. On my second one only. Plan for today, only Ciné Paris, early Fifth Avenue (expecting nothing) then up to Gare du Nord and check out the windows. Maybe a Brussels Grill steak or Domino’s Pizza (or both) then early bed. Up again later for Empire.
