Nobody expects SATURDAY!!! from Alan Reed.

And it is Saturday again. It is Saturday and so there are things that will happen. Things! The sorts of things that you expect to happen and the sorts of things that you do not expect to happen. Or perhaps it will be things that you do not expect to happen and then things that you expect to happen. It depends on what you expected to happen. This, you might not have expected this. It does not sound like what you expected to happen and yet it is almost Saturday. Saturday! Of course we are writing things and we are sending you things. And if these things are not the things that you expect us to write and the things that you expect us to send, well, that is pretty much what you expect of us, isn’t it? Hello. It is Saturday again. There are things that will happen. I am here. I will do things. I will read to you some things that I did not make and I will read to you a thing that I did make. It is about Orpheus. Warren Fry and Olchar Lindsann will help with the thing that I made and they will read to you some things that I did not make. They did not make these other things that they will read either. They are things that other people made. There will be things that other people made. There will be things made by Samuel Beckett and Mark Sonnefeld and Jacques Derrida and Tomislav Butkovic and R. M. Liuzza. Some of them will read the things that they made and others of them will not read the things that they made. Those are the things that will happen. Saturday. Seven o’clock. 131 Bayard. It is a nice house. And things will happen.

And then. On Sunday. Sunday! There will be things, things that you do not expect. We will go for breakfast. Because we do go for breakfast on Sundays. We may not go when it is time for breakfast but we will go for breakfast. We will go to The Hungry Pedlar. It is a nice place to go for breakfast. And after we go for breakfast we will go back to the house, the house at 131 Bayard, and we will do more things. More things! We will have tea and we will have cakes. Well, we’ll probably have coffee instead of tea. I know how to make a very good cup of coffee and I am not so good with tea. Coffee would probably go better. And the things. We will read things. We will talk about things. We will have things and it would be good if you had things too. It will be good. All of it. All of it will be good.
