You Don't Gotta Have Friends

While we’re on the subject . . .


What was more natural for a recently-retired English professor than to wish to further foster reason, logic, and rationality by volunteering to help the Friends of the local library? Thus, I sped off a check to the Friends, becoming for my fifty-dollar donation a member at the “High Exalted Benefactor” level (or whatever it was called) and received, in return, something magnetic and a copy of the Friends' newsletter.

After sticking the magnetic thingy on the fridge, I opened the newsletter only to discover that the Friends’ next lecture would be a presentation by a personage who helps one discover who one was in one’s past life.

I immediately became un-Friendly.
