Pete can’t stop won’t stop improving his art .  I have been trying to respond in kind.  Except, when I say “trying” I actually mean “flailing my arms around”, and when I say “to respond in kind” I mean “and crying in a corner”.  Needless to say, It’s been hard to get any work done.  Pete assures me that what we do is a collaborative effort.  Have I hitched myself to a star or has he attached himself to a boat anchor?  Well, hey, if this doesn’t work out for me, I can always wait for Pete to make it, then rob him.
