The second half of my career

Friend: If you ever got out of newspapers, you could always run for office.

Me: Uh, no.

Friend: On second thought, I doubt you survive the vetting process.

Me: There’s that. And then there’s the fact that the older I get, well,
the less I like people.

Friend: That could be a mild handicap, yes.

Me: In fact, I think I’m well on the way to curmudgeonhood. But not a
bitter curmudgeon, a charming curmudgeon, I hope.

Friend: Lex, you were *born* a curmudgeon. When you entered the world,
you said, “*Well*??”

Me: (laughs)

Friend: “Is that all there is?”
