I was the only person who had to go back to the office so I drank water while S. had beers and M. drank gins and tonics. We spread out the election results like so many animal entrails and tried to tell the future. Unclear, ominous, requiring nose-to-the-grindstone style work. I had the reuben and it came open faced and there was less sandwich that way which is probably why I didn’t leave feeling sick.
