starting a new season! Were he here respecting his listeners instead
of struggling to get out of a tipped over shopping cart without
spilling his Manhattan or God knows what, Jon might compare it to
starting a brand new bottle of single malt scotch. But as he is not
here, and is most probably throwing up in a mail box, allow me to
compare it to a new school year:
In the meantime, a word of welcome from Howard Chackowicz.
A New Season
As Jon is
too busy buying hootch, drinking hootch and/or crying naked in a public
rest room after having drank too much hootch, I figured I'd pick up the
slack and welcome you all to a new season of Wiretap.
by Howard Enoch Neil Chackowicz.
The smell of brand new school
supplies and tomorrow's monkey shines. Will the new teacher like me?
What flavour gum will bullies massage into my hair? The butterflies in
the stomach, too. And while Jon would probably drown those fluttery
butterflies with a thermos full of alcool and lemonade, I choose to
cherish them. Newness can sometimes be scary, but it's exciting, too!
knows what mischief I'll get up to? Who knows what schemes Gregor will
hatch to help his ungrateful pal Jon? Will this be the season that
Josh's voice finally cracks? Will Jon finally admit he's hit rock
bottom and get the help he sorely needs? So many questions waiting to
be answered... for you, dear listener!
To all of tomorrow's souvlakis,
