I had exactly zero customers yesterday. No packages arrived for me to check in, price, and put away. Not even anybody who came in to look and didn't buy. The only work work I had was the handful of unsold manuals TD brought back from the university classes that I had to put back into inventory. Big whoop. ES stopped in to fax some insurance papers and we chatted. Aside from a call from a supplier for an order clarification, that was it for my work day. Or should I say "work" (imagine those are air quotes) day, since the only work I did was keep myself from falling asleep by knitting and listening to an audiobook. Tsk.

March 7--Gilbert Stuart, Louis-Marie, Vicomte de Noailles. It was a long ride with no talking. Louie felt welded to the saddle and his mouth was dry and stuck shut. For a while when they started out it was too early and both of them were too sleepy to talk. There were a few words exchanged before the heat of the day bore down on them...
Speaking of sleepy, that's when I crapped out. There's a sleep-scribble over the word "heat" in that last phrase. Sorry about that, but I have to say I like falling asleep too easily better than not being able to fall asleep.
