Gene Weingarten and I have a chat.
1. No, I didn't say most of that. I said versions of many of those words but they've been ...reshaped. It's not a real interview. It's a humor column--his humor column. (I wrote "his humor, his column" except I laughed, a lot, so I guess it's my humor too.)
2. yes, that picture really does look just like me in a red wig and Gene with a Fabio doo.
3. have I mentioned how much Mike loves that POS crap car? It's not great in the snow, but he still drives it, always and always.
