Because everybody gets in a rut. Take me. A rut! But down there in Atlantic City, I got into a lot of thinking. You know what I mean? I don’t mean just stewin’ around, I mean thinking. And to tell you the truth, I was surprised by how enjoyable it was! Well, you take most people, including me. They hardly ever get to do any thinking. When do they get the time? Or if you do get the time, there’s the movies or the radio or you play a game of cards, but no thinking. Down there it was my first chance in I don’t know how long, and I’ve made up a rule: I’m gonna do at least a half hours of thinking every day, all by myself. Just quietly.
