Page one.

It’s your favorite author’s brand new book, just out of your mailbox and out of the corrugated box and out of the shrink-wrap.

It’s anniversary reservations at that restaurant.

It’s the last day of school, May 25, 1983, and Return of the Jedi opens as soon as the bell rings.

It’s a new season of The Shield, a new Radiohead CD, a cold beverage and some Chuy’s fresca by the pool with a bunch of friends.

It’s Chuck Morgan’s voice and Eric Nadel’s voice and those smells.

The Magic Number is 163.  It’s a beautiful number.

There are no more sleeps to count off, only the aggravating crawl of the clock.  Fight through it.

Here’s to the awesomeness of a pennant-defending Page One.
