missed turn

Something (mildly) funny happened today. I stumbled on this post about Richard Pryor (on Beeker Idea's blog). Then went out for lunch. Caught myself thinking about the post, its argument, its tone, its prose. Lost in my thoughts, missed a turn (it happens to me all the time). Made a U-turn 100m down the road (laughing at myself). Well, that was the (mildly) funny part. The post? It is a wonderful essay on what makes Richard Pryor funny. I wish I could write like that.
