Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. There’s a moment of orderly silence before a football play begins. Players are in position, linemen are frozen, and anything is possible. TV announcer: Almost Indian-summer weather here in mid-November. Then, like a traffic accident, stuff begins to randomly collide. From the snap of the ball to the snap of the first bone is closer to four seconds than five. TV announcer: First and 10, Riggins flea-flicker back to Theismann.

Okay, so now there we are in my apartment, and she begins going on about her religious views. Her obscure denomination’s views on energy fields and connections between souls via what she kept calling ‘focus.
