The next •chance operations• reading will be held at Duff's, 392 N. Euclid, on Monday, November 28.
Featured readers will be Julia Gordon-Bramer, Chris King, and Drucilla Wall.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m., $3 admission.
Musical guest Roy Gokenbach, guitar, formerly of Erin Bode Group; played LeRoy in indie movie classic A: Anonymous.
Newly transferred from Atlanta, she was going from a North County restaurant to her motel. I flirted, "You didn't learn to talk like that in Atlanta."
"I'm from Nigeria."
We chatted, normally, I thought.
At the motel: "Why don't you come see me on Saturday. We could have a good time." She gave me the room and phone numbers.
Finally, a line I've never heard from an American woman: "I don't want to have to masturbate myself."
