Thursday, 6 a.m.

I swung by the tennis courts the other day. Almost no one was home.

There was one court being used. A guy who looked like he was trying to beat his mule was playing a guy looked like he had last played in the Crimean War.

I'm not sure, but I think the second guy was shaving points.

What I'm saying is you can't trust what you see these days. The first guy, who was wearing a faded blue t-shirt, was far ahead in the match, but I think he was in the tank. He kept hitting the ball into the net. It seemed as if he had done it before.
