    Well, he's not coming. I have things to do before I show up, and he can't really wait in the car.

    As stated previously, I'd like to bring a Certain Someone to this meeting, but only if we sit outside. And the sun isn't beating down. Which I think will probably be happening, unfortunately. I will mention if I'm bringing this individual closer to the time.

    Does "A Confederacy of Dunces" count as satire?

      First, we're not really picky about meeting the code of a genre, but second, I was curious and looked it up and someone has actually called that book a "reverse satire!" Interesting! Read it and tell us why it is reverse!!!
