It’s John.

John Warczak? You finally returning my hedge clippers?

No, John Henry. From the Red Sox.


So. The wife tells me I should call you or I’m basically shut off. How is everything?

Not bad. If you like unemployment.

Heh. I don’t know what that means.

Is there a point to this?

I just wanted you to know that you were the best manager the Red Sox ever had.

Really? I’d hate to see how you’d treat the worst.


That was a joke, right?

That was funny.

So… have you heard the new CD by that Norah Jones woman?

I gotta go.

Cue: “Thank You For Being A Friend.” FADE OUT.
