The teading by David Sedaris is wonderful!
Tuesday, June 12, Roy Spivey, v. Who in the world is Roy Spivey? It was a great story, but setting that aside for a moment, it's driving me nuts that I can't think of who she must be referring to.
I think he was famous in the s, based on the time passage in the story, and she said "now," which probably really is now, he has his own TV show where he plays the father of 12 unruly kids.
And "Roy Spivey" is almost an anagram of his name. It has something to do with why I suck at math and anything that involves conceptualizing numbers or letters.
The "v" is throwing me off. All I could think of was Steve Martin, but he's no movie star heartthrob, sorry. She's one of those female writers that manages to show her brilliance and her insecurity all at once, kind of Nora Ephron-ish.
It wouldn't be summer if I didn't get myself into some kind of freak accident, would it. The very morning I thought to myself, "wow, it's been almost a year since I've been to the emergency room," I mangled two fingers on my right hand. How did I accomplish this? Let me tell you.
It happened so fast that I didn't realize what was happening until blood was pouring down my hand. And seeing as I LOVE unwanted attention, I did everything I could to wrap my hand up quietly and run downstairs and try unsuccessfully to get the bleeding to stop.
Because I'm a cheapass I didn't go to the ER. In retrospect, probably a dumb thing. But Swati was nice enough to look at my hand and apply her doctor skills to bandage it up and make sure it wasn't fractured or broken.
I'm a little disturbed because the gashes still look kind of hideous, 3 days later, and my index finger still hurts like hell when I bend it the wrong way. But what the fuck would the ER doctor have done anyway, other than exactly what Swati did, and maybe put it in a splint? If it's fractured, it's fractured.
There's not much they can do. And if there's a scar, so what?
It's just my hand. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.Inmate Lookup. Enter first and/or last name or an initial in either field OR leave blank to view all inmates in order of most recent booking. We found 65 instances of Roy Spivey in the United States.
