    Thought it said “duck” for a minute there. Duck is masculine however.

    Señor Carlos writes with his feet, for all to see. He teaches classes on Pig- Latin, and has many zapatos to protect his gift. He’s got a big collection of pens and pencils to teach his students! Oink!

    I write on my feet.

    Well, actually I don’t. It just seemed an obvious thing to write.

    And come to think of it, that’s an ambiguous statement. It could mean that I write while standing, which is sometimes true.

    That’s precisely what one book reviewer said about my first novel! ( Or was it my editor who said that? )

    “…Vasserot the armless ambidextrian lights a match between his great and second toe..”—Archibald McLeish. The joys of high school English. Quoting and spelling from memory so there may be innacuracy.

    Proverbs 6:13

    Warnings Against Foolishness

    … worthless person, a wicked man, walks with a perverse mouth, winking his eyes, speaking with his feet, and pointing with his fingers. With deceit in his heart he devises evil; he continually sows discord.…

    He looks a little like the notoriously poor-eyesighted James Joyce, born 2 February 1882. Is this intentional, a slam at the author of Finnegan’s Wake (considered a difficult read) and (Yes! Yes! Yes!) Ulysses?

    Should we check in again on Bloomsday (16 June)?

    Or is this merely some other schmuck who in Spanish writes with his feet (whatever that Mexican writer’s insult to another writer is supposed to mean)?

    Am I writing with my feet? Not really; but that’s only because of the physical difficulty….
