Dear Wigleaf,

Today is probably not a good day for the girl, even though it is a good day for Gertie. It is a good day for Gertie; it's always about the breast, full breast, come flying. Today the girl is taking stock and still shivering, which is more like a deep tremor coming from inside her dark torso. It happens in the legs, too, and the neck, it's clear there is a disconnect, a misfire between the brain and the eyes. There is only so much standing on one leg, that is, testing of one's balance. Suck down hard on a peppermint and the nausea will forget how to turn. She expected as much.
