My cowboy boss is deep into Virgil right now. He sidles up to my desk every now and then to discuss it. “See, the bad alliances Virgil is talkin’ about, that’s just common sense at the track. You never team up with someone to buy a horse. You gotta always buy your own horse. And Virgil knew that, that’s what he’s saying. You gotta go your own way.”
Speaking of ridiculous literary parallels, I realized recently that the Lad is Mr. Knightly. He’s honest and sincere and does the right thing because it is the right thing. And I, with this chattery blog, I am Miss Bates.
