PETS: There’s this squirrel that hangs out on my neighbor’s fence every morning. He looks at me, twitches his tail “Hello” and won’t leave until I say “Good Morning, Eddie.”
I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: A copy of The Devil’s Dictionary, a good hat, and a plan.
I WROTE THIS SONG: on a friend’s right-handed guitar, so all the strings were upside down cuz I play left-handed. It’s like climbing up a ditch. The lower you go, the higher you get.
