What’s your inner parakeet telling you? said Harlan. He’s telling me, said Blurtso, that there’s a half-eaten pumpkin pie in the fridge. What’s yours telling you? He’s telling me, said Harlan, that someone already finished the second half.

“Bonny and Pablo go for tapas”

There’s a bar on Inman Square named after Salvador Dali.

Y para la señorita? said the barkeep. Lo mismo, said Bonny.
