Hello Young Lovers by Jimmy Durante (Warner Bros. Records 1531) 
Everything is crazy right now.  I haven't worked in a month, my insurance officially ended yesterday, and my temporary crown is bothering me. It's a dull ache, a mild throb. The pain actually woke me the other night, but a little Ibuprofen in the morning and a little rum in the evening takes the edge off.

I interviewed for a job yesterday and to be honest, there's really nothing great about it. It's inconveniently located, the pay is terrible, and there's zero chance of promotion. Still, after a month of applying for jobs, this is the first time someone contacted me and said we'd like you to come in and talk with us. 

I arrived early and filled out some paperwork. The guy was very nice and as I drove away I realized it was the first time in a month I've had the opportunity to put on some work clothes and speak with someone civilized.  

Even if things don't work out, it was a moment I will remember and appreciate.
