Postcards From “The Edge”
Last night we were having dinner with the President of America and Bono made a joke that I was “the edgy one.” Everyone laughed, even Adam and Larry. Even the President of America. Even his wife. I bent my spoon in half and had to hide it under my napkin. The President of America asked, “Not enjoying the soup?” and when I said nothing his wife said, “Quiet, dear … you’re putting him ‘on edge’” and everyone laughed again, hard, and I wished the earth would implode upon itself like a neutron star and suck me screaming into the eternal void.
