Joy, Sweet Joy

Couple months ago I realized I had forgotten to renew my subscription to Scientific American. Over the years I have let all my subscriptions lapse, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Martha Stewart, Highlights, but good old SciAm is like a sweet lover who comes to me monthly and leaves me filled with dirty thoughts on evolution and space travel.
So yeah, I let it lapse. I didn’t mean to. Just slipped my mind. I renewed as soon as I could, but happened to miss two months.
Today I came home to find those two issues waiting for me in my mailbox. I did not request these two issues, they just showed up.
SciAm is a reticent, quiet lover, but he’s thoughtful and when it comes down to it, that’s exactly what we need.
