Random Journal Excerpt From a Remote Location

the human chimney

My fixer smokes constantly, has the worst psoriasis I’ve ever seen, has an arthritic arm that for a while would only move in one direction. If you don’t understand him he gets flustered and says the same thing over again only louder, he periodically spits food on me or into my food and he has the most disgusting snoring I’ve ever heard in my life. He usually starts smoking next to me when I am about half way through my meal… spewing smoke and ash all over my food. He brought one small bag for this trip... it has a couple of extra shirts and four cartons of cigarettes. That said, he is a solid, nice, very bright guy.
