An American in Paris

CR-09

Our iron-fisted ruler at NotGraphs may be in Arizona for the springiest of all trainings right now, but spiritually, he’s still in Paris, guzzling wine, writing “poems,” and hating America.

Brilliant. And prescient.

I mean, you should’ve seen the empty chairs surrounding that guy at Spring Training.

An empty chair – a chair that’s empty. This is a chair with no one sitting in it, and it’s joining us on today’s edition of FanGraphs audio, starting right now.

Drinking during the day? Isn’t that classic writer behavior, a la Hemingway, etc?

Having just spent a long weekend in Paris, I can personally attest to the high amount of dog mess and cigarette butts strewn about the cobblestone streets. And strewn, it is.

Notice the limp nature of the right wrist. In Paris this is a trait of an intellectual existentialist staring out on all the theatre a city street provides thinking, “Why me? What role should I play in all this, if any? Ah the hellish responsibility of having choice”.

Over here in America, we have a different name for publicly displaying the limp qualities a wrist is capable of, which is also used as a euphemism for cigarettes over in London.

As Carl Jung would correctly and ardently point out, environment is everything.

Amazing. I got into a fight with a tiffany lamp and a gateleg table at that exact same café.

Frankly the home goods there are a bunch of assholes. I wouldn’t have given that chair the time of day.

I laughed at this post largely because I am intoxicated.
