“I was drinkin with Harry Lu. It was rainin -- we were dry in a Port Moresby bar under a tin roof that had been patched up more times than any theoretical marriage between Tanya Harding, Madonna, Ann Coulter, and Hillary Clinton to Prince Faisal. I was thinkin maybe it was time to leave New Guinea -- go back to Maine. But, uh, what would I do if I went home? Open my own Foster’s bee-ah dealership? Sell pencils to drivers at stoplights? Rent out half a cardboard box to a roommate? I should’ve done my twenty in the Marine Corps or, ah, at least learned how to type -- Semper Fi.” - See Port Moresby at Three a.m. by Kevin O’Kendley (short story section this blog site)
