I think this is one of JDM’s best stories, although my wife doesn’t like it. I’m not certain that she used the word “juvenile”, but she might have. Come to think of it, she doesn’t like Travis McGee either, so what does she know?

My conscience does require me to report that she gave ole Trav a decent shot, ploughing from Blue through most of Tan before throwing in the towel. She did like Orange; one night she awoke from a sound sleep, sat up and said “Boo Waxwell. He’s so creepy.” before zonking out again. I blame it on the burritos.
