On Monday night, James and I went to a (very long) play.
We stopped for hot chocolate after with
J.D. and Ryan, two old pals,
and ended up back home at about 1:00ish,
which is late for a Monday night,
I don't care who you are.
I was brushing my teeth when James,
apropos of nothing,
told me that Nathaniel Hawthorne was "kind of hack".
It's a bold statement.
Maybe, maybe not.
