    But alas... the great Saint let you eat potatoes..more and more potatoes. Soon you have found out you ate over 15 potatoes, how will your stomach feel in a few minutes? Will you even live though all of the food or become sick an ill. For only god to tell this bystander, horrified and shocked at what has just become over you, from all the stuffing and chewing of the golden potatoes, shall walk back out onto the ship back to Ireland, in order to get some food himself. For now adieu and remorse if you make it to Easter!

    ...Tuscany.  And it was all that he remembered.  The sun a golden patina over the ancient hills embraced him; warmed him from within.

    Then something, if it were not so ordinary, came on as an epiphany.  He remembered it was always thus.  The girls walking in the village down dust roads in new dresses, the parents cooking for their children before a growing dusk. 

    The darkness always coming on--a sacred thing. 

    A small cafe ahead.  He ordered a bottle of the ordinary house Rosso and savored it.

    ...He had just remembered with all this traveling around that he had clean forgotten his dear wife's birthday.  He downed the Rosso straight from the bottle, pushed his chair aside and ran into the Tuscan sunset, scattering the girls walking in new dresses, he hailed a cab and headed for the airport.

    Because when it came down to it, he just wasn't too fond of girls who wore new clothes all the time.  Too high maintenance, damn.

    He should know.  To this day he still dreams of being king of Seattle with Sarah Palin his second. Her main duties where in the field of educamacation and making sure he never ran out of fresh fruit to eat.

    Funny, he never has shaken the feeling he is being followed by a pack of racoons dressed as hookers either.
