Countdown to Ecstasy

Woken c. 730am by the garbage truck, the other garbage truck, the glass recycling truck, the paper recycling truck, the City of Vancouver sewer clean-out truck with the slurpy hose, car alarm going off, sure it's being burgled by all of the above.

Clock radio goes off: "...right back after Nickelback."

-It's like waking up in friggin' Guantanamo Bay.

-No, they'd be playing Aja there.

Torrential driving rain. Ragged guy with wet garbage bag of trashed textbooks on the doorstep.

-Sorry. I can't use any of these.

-Why the fuck not?

Phone ringing.

-What's the most recent book you have on learning English. I need its title, price, publication date, and page count.

-Well, we have a languages section--

-That's not what I asked you now, is it?
