sighted: the old mixer, inverness street, camden, london, NW1, wednesday 31 january 2007, 6:45 p.m.

savvy could tell he was irish without even speaking to him. this hunch was confirmed when PJ introduced himself, and said he was from county mayo, to be exact. savvy has some experience with county mayo, thus the conversation flowed nicely enough while we dropped surnames, place names, and exchanged genealogical histories, we covered the whole of the country and sailed into boston. although at first shy, spry, and cutting, PJ warmed to savvy's friendly ways, offering cigarettes and the like. when he lit up, his hands-blackened from jackhammering concrete all day-held the cigarette like pierce brosnan or peter o'toole. if you hadn't noticed already, they don't smoke like the rest of us. PJ is not like the rest of us. he's something special, which is why he's savvy.
