In His Own Words

About Him

Action at a Distance

So I'm walking down 7th in Melville this morning, and your name comes up in conversation. Immediately this weathered white woman (maybe drunk, maybe homeless) goes 'Ssshhh'. I figure that has to be worth two rand, so I give it to her. We keep walking, pass the Full Stop Café, and picking up the conversation where I'd left off, your name trips off my lips. This time a guy sitting outside the café turns around and says 'Ssshhh'. Admittedly, I'm loud, and I'm used to getting shushed in a movie theatre for crunching ice, but this kind of social censorship is a bit bizarre. Of course, it could also be coincidence. We get a table at Spiro's. Nina and I are looking down at the menus when Nina says, 'so tell me about 'Lisa Melman'. Now it's the waiter's turn to 'Ssshhh' Nina. And I'm thinking, 'Well, at least it isn't me.'

Anyway, after breakfast, I head over to my friend Paul Evan's place on 2nd. I settle down at the side of his bed, and I tell him what just happenened. So, 'you know', I say 'what's the deal with this Ssshhhing business.' Now Paul generally loves to dish the dirt - but all he says is that 'anytime you utter the name Lisa Melman, without saying "Ssshhh", you potentially set in motion a chain of events that you just can't control.' Doing my best McEnroe imitation, I say, 'You can't be serious. You can not be serious.' He gives me one of those all-knowing, head linesman-like, Yoda head-tilt-shrugs, and disappears into the ambient hissing of his oxygen tank.

Now I'm driving back home through Parkview, and I turn onto one of my favourite streets, Galway. And I'm thinking Lisa Melman thoughts, and about all this 'ssshhhing', and what Paul said. I pull the car over. I figure this is as good a place as any to gather myself and maybe run a test.

About His Ideal Match

I get out of the car. The street's empty. It seems pretty safe - so I say, 'Lisa Melman'. Boom, the Jacaranda that line both sides of the road explode into a canopy of purple blossoms. Cool. I mean as spontaneous, unpredictable events go, that's not so bad. I try it again. 'Lisa Melman'. Nothing. Well, actually after a few seconds, a standard schnauzer puppy runs up the street trailing his leash. Lost dog, but very cute. I bend down, he licks my hand, I look at his tags. One says, 'Springsteen'. Hmmmm. me. Two for two. Jacaranda blossoms and the dog I always wanted. Pretty damn good. I should get out while I'm ahead, right. But half the fun of life is letting it ride, see what happens next. So I say, 'Lisa Melman'. Phone rings. It's my Dad. He says, 'Get a pen.' Ok, my Dad's been dead for over 8 years, but it seemed like a reasonable request at the time. So I say 'Shoot.' He goes, 'Here are tomorrow's winners at Turfontein.' I take down his picks. I figure since he's never gone 9 for 9 before, this should make us both very happy. When he's finished, I ask, 'So am I gonna hear from you again?' He says, 'That all depends on ... Lisa Melman.' Boom, dropped call. Which, on the one hand is disappointing, since I haven't spoken to him in eight years, but on the other, I'm thinking, kind of reassuring: nice to know that they have reception problems too.

Things come into and out of being under the pressure of existence. Diamonds, oil and quarks. Earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis. Cats, dogs and people. By four pm, just an hour after I'd begun running my little experiment, the wire services are reporting that Al Qaeda, ISIS, Islamic Jihad and Hamas have all claimed credit for a range of calamities that have beset the advanced Western democracies. No matter that residents of both Niger and Nevada now occupy beach front property. Nor that the ratio of good events to bad events stood in perfect equipoise. .... (write back for end of story)
