I was listening to the audio stuff Tom made for his internet show that I wrote about last entry and it reminded me that this part really happened:

Sitting on a low wall outside of a burger joint by the Elbow Room that's not there anymore on a summer night. I think it was me, Jim, and Tom on bikes and we had stopped on our way home to eat lemon ices or something. A woman walks past with a big dog.

"Hey! Is that a rottweiler?" Tom asks.

"Um, yeah," she says, slowing down a little.

Tom nods his head and says, "Looks like a rottweiler."

The oddness of that conversation made me laugh and I stored it away in my head for later. For now.
