Nothing Personal, Kid.
[The story begins here.]
I came to in a bed, gently rocking, my head squeezed in a vise at every motion. They'd put me on a train. My skull felt like a rotten melon, my face was numb. I crawled out of bed and fell on my face. My face was too big and my feet felt wrong. My toes weren't where they belonged. I knew the feeling: Somebody'd slipped me a needle while I was out. No way of knowing how long I'd been in dreamland. I looked around. Pullman berth. Pitch dark outside the window, but... too dark. It was painted black. I'd scrape it off, if they gave me time. Meanwhile I needed water.
I scaled the sink like it was Everest, and it took about as long. Finally I got a look at myself in the mirror.
And screamed. And screamed and fell to the shifting floor of that Hell-chamber and screamed again.
My face was stark pure white. And my nose: A sphere the size of a golf ball, bright red, matching my hair. And on my feet... CLOWN SHOES!
"So that's how it happened, kid. That's how I got into this line of work. You asked, I gave. Mighty white of me, eh? Heh heh heh. No pun intended."
I could tell my personal history had touched his heart, but in my business you can't be too sentimental. The worn old GI .45 still felt good in my hand, whatever shoe size I may happen to wear now. I worked the slide and let him have it.
The shot echoed around the old warehouse. I checked my watch: 1:07 am. The kid's eyes went dull and flat and he'd never see anything ever again. Outside, it was raining.
"Nothing personal, kid. Nothing personal."

I Never Did Like to Shoot a Dame
[The story begins here.]
The worn old GI .45 felt good in my hand and I slapped her across the temple with the barrel and made for the door. I never did like to shoot a dame, and this time it almost killed me. Her first shot went wild but the second caught me in the ribs low on the right-hand side. Then I had to shoot her after all. I staggered out into the drumming downpour, cursing myself for a fool.
I walked until I could hardly stand, going noplace but away from there and looking over my shoulder with every step. I holed up in an alley til I could walk again but still my head wouldn't settle down. In another alley I shared a quart of Dago red with a rough old bum who couldn't speak. The wine cleared my thoughts and I set out for the edge of town, to find a place out of that relentless rain. The next alley I passed I heard a sound just a hair too late. The sap caught me behind the ear and all I knew was a moment of roaring flashing obscurity as I fell.

A Real Smart Fella
[The story begins here.]
"Buy me a drrink, sholder?"
"I'm not a soldier, sister. Not now. Not any more."
"Well, you don' look like a sailor."
She laughed like a wood-chipper eating a pint bottle of rotgut bourbon. She was loaded to the gills. Just another worn-out bottle blonde on the wrong side of forty in a lonely town, scraping the rent together with her shopworn carcass, the only way she knew how. That's what I thought, all right. Yeah, I'm a real judge of character. I was a fine old judge of character as I let her keep leaning against me because I didn't have the heart to push her away. I was a real smart fella. I knew it all, I did, right up until the moment I looked down and saw her shoes. Shoes two feet long. Bright red, turned up at the end. And then I felt the muzzle of a .32 against my ribcage.
May 20, 2005
[The story begins here.]
I walked down the steps and out into the storm, rain coursing off my hat brim. The driver remembered me and didn't move to fetch the bag he knew I didn't have. They don't like the kind of men who travel without luggage. He didn't love me for it one bit and he stared me down with hard stupid narrow little eyes under his pointed hat. I flipped him a dime and said "Thanks for the personal attention, Jack. Bread upon the waters, Jack. A hundredfold." He didn't like that any better but by then I was walking away, making for the one lighted doorway on the street. "Ernie's Grill", the sign said. Not too much light inside. My kind of place.
I walked into the dim little taproom with water-stained walls and one old man behind the bar, and one sad old girl on the other side of it in a too-tight dress, waiting for her luck to change. I didn't care to change it, myself, but she thought different. She stumbled down from her end of the bar and collapsed half-leaning on me on the stool next to mine.

1:07 AM. Oblesburg.
The Greyhound jerked to a stop in a driving rain, tossing me out of a warm dream of a time that'll never come again, a time before the war. I rubbed my eyes and looked out through the crazy rivers on the window glass. A shabby rotten little corner of a shabby little city, a city full of shabby decent people who just want some peace and never seem to get it. A forgotten place to jungle up for a while until Kroc's boys back on the Coast forgot my face.
I looked at my watch. 1:07 AM. This was the place, all right.

i bean muterin so much about chowdarheads i dacided to have chowder for diner. so i thot id share my recipy because lets face it im alitle short on clowan stories today.
arlingtons scalop chowder
this is abot as simple as u can get an still call it chowder. also if some asshat form new yrok tries to feed you tomata soup an calls it 'chowder' i sugest you shoot im. an if some asshat form boston tries to give you pumpernikcel an calls it 'dark rye bread' i suggast u shoot him. a pox on both of em.
- 1/2 cup fish stock1
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 2 tablspoons buttar
- one mediam red potater diced 1/4 inch or so er a bit moare. i mean for gods sake dont get al o.c.d. abot it ok.
- 1/4 tespoon salt
- 1/4 tsp frech garound black peper
- mabe 1/3 pound a bay scalleps or so. or sea scallaps i guess.
melt butter in pan. add minced onion. keep the heat low! u just wana soften em not cramelize em.
at teh same time put the potato an fish stock in a pot. cover an cook real slow for fifteen minutes or so until the potaters all soft an the stock is starchy. stir real good several times as you go along to get some starch off the taters and make sur it all dont stick. u want it thick whit lumps. if u dont like lumps in ur chowder u can just go to hell for all i care.
when the potato glops ready add the mlik to it an stir it. then crank up the heat undar the onions a bit. when thats goin good an sizlin add scllalpes to onions. cook em one minute on either side (er maybe two if theyre sea scallaps). youll want em slightly browned but watch out u dont wana overcook em. they turn inta superbals real easy.
at two minutes on teh dot (er 4 if sea scalps yada yada) add the milk/potato glop an the salt an peper an let simmer real low for two minutes.
its done! eat it! crusty bread an beer! decent beer whit some balls not budwiser or whatever crap liek that. i thikn ipswich nut-brown is ideal with this one. er reguler ipswich ale. but HA HA U LOSE if ur not in new egland ur probly s.o.l. on ipswich! but siera nevada i.p.a. is ok. er hey even sam adams. just not schlitz for gods sake. i mean it.
this makes one hefty servign. multiply at will.
1 ppl say botled clam juice is a tolerable substituate for fis stock but i nevar tried. i use kichan basics sefood stock myslef but i dont especily vuoch for it. im waaaay to lazy to colect fish bones an all taht crap an make my owan is all.
in rode island they put chorizo or linguica in theyre clam chowader an also red peper flakes an olive oil. lotta portaguese in rhoade islend. also cape verdeans more recently.
