Yet Another Tragic Pandemic Tale From Right Out of LA

Paid a visit the other day to an old friend named “Cliff,” who has a place up in the mountains overlooking LA.  As you can see, Cliff’s the kind of a guy who enjoys “living on the edge.”  Now, I realize we’re all supposed to be self-distancing these days, but I went over because Cliff was feeling really down – at least for a guy who lives way up.  

Turns out, Cliff’s wife Mona – had suddenly left him.  Not intensionally, mind you – for you see, Mona was a sleep-walker.  Now, I know some of you are going to ask, why in the hell would a woman allow herself “fall” for a guy named Cliff – who lives off the side of a mountain?  Well, it’s like I told you, Mona was a sleep-walker – so I guess it was just a matter of physics.

Anyway, while all this may seem like a really sad tale, it really isn’t.  That’s because it has a rather happy ending.  You see, I also have another friend, who happens to work as a seismologist – and he tells me that, in his professional opinion, “it’s only a matter of time before your friend Cliff will rejoin his wife Mona.”  Now, come on!  Don’t you just love happy endings?
