I board the T in Brookline, headed for the suburbs. Instead of the usual trolley, the T is a coach bus, driven by Ricky. He narrates along the way, cracking jokes (“anyone getting off at this stop? nobody? good. man, Schneiderville is so stupid.”). We come to an end and its only dub hap or affiliated friends on the bus, and we’re at a quarry/woods spot. My bosses come by and hire me, telling me that Yoichi is also going to be hired as the new secretary.
