A Conversation Between Angels LXXVIII

“Hey where you been?”

“Been trying to find someone Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?”

“Oh yeah, who’d you find?”

“James Joyce. But he was busy writing.”

“Who else?”

“Samuel Beckett.”

“Let me guess, writing?”

“Yeah, so I looked up W. C. Fields.”

“I didn’t know he was Irish.”

“He’s not, but he said if I could find some booze he’d celebrate with me.”
