He went to the same reading conference I did, IRA. He's still there, frantically updating the customer information databases to keep up with the 3000 or so new entries we get every day--we've got THE most popular booth there.
So this morning, someone had written on the (blank) dry-erase board, where there'd usually be the quote of the day:
I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them... Where is Sam?
To which I responded (because I have to use my poetry degree somehow--)
Sam? He is at IRA. He should return some time in May. They needed him for databases, and other such troublesome cases.
