Tender Memories of Disgusting Human Behavior

Hi David!

I've recently returned to Seattle after living abroad for the past ten years and wherever I was, your insights on public displays of grooming stayed with me. I thought of you particularly the day I walked by a man shaving, with shaving cream and a flat razor, in a fountain outside of a church in Brussels. This fountain, interestingly enough, was situated very closely to the open air public urinal installed on the side of the church. (L'eglise St. Catherine, Brussels, Belgium.) I saw so many odd displays of public grooming in Belgium I stopped keeping track. Clipping nails on the metro was very common, as was urinating everywhere (it's the francophone way!) How often I thought of Last Days and laughed! You helped me through many shocked and disgusted times.

Best, Erin

Thank you, Erin, and welcome back.
