Happy Birthday, Sidney Poitier!

Dear Sidney,

Guess who’s coming to dinner? Me! Do you have room for one more? My friend Eddie is in town for the weekend and I’d hate to leave him at my apartment alone with a can of soup for one because I don’t have a can opener or spoon. He won’t be a nuisance at the table. Eddie’s really good at dinnertime small talk. He can segue from topic to topic with ease and has an extensive repertoire of humorous anecdotes to keep us laughing into the wee hours. Plus, he’s got a Labrador that we can slip our food to if we’re not enjoying the meal.

We’ll be there at 8:00 p.m. Should I bring a Jell-O mold?

Happy birthday,
Geoff Wolinetz
