Here’s a bit of dialogue I found in Kip’s journal, but I have no idea to whom he is speaking…


“So I said to the kid, ‘How often to you use your tree house?’

He answered, ‘I love my tree house.’

‘That’s not what I asked,’ I said. ‘I asked how often you used it?’

‘Oh, somewhere kind of in the middle.’

‘In the middle of what?’

‘In the middle of a lot and not very much,’ he said.

‘Oh,’ I told that kid.

That same kid called a three of clubs a three of clovers.”

“How old was he?”

“I don’t know. Probably ten.”

“I suppose you were doing long division in your head at ten?”

“I honestly don’t recall.”

“So you’re out of touch.”

“I guess.”


He was probably talking to a woman, from the way it sounds.
