  * Your dream vacation is to sit quietly and eat while war ravages everything around you.

  * You complain to your mother that she isn't pushing your father toward suicide hard enough.

  * Even though your wife is screaming and beating you about the face you see nothing wrong when you pop in your wedding tape and The Old Man and the Sea starts playing.

  * You ready yourself for your anniversary dinner by splashing gin on your neck and face and muttering 'Hemingway Cologne...for all Papa's men.'

  * You actaully believe your friend's jokes about deflecting God's lightening bolts with a Hemingway book.

  * Your wife glances through Reynold's The Final Years and gets rid of your shotgun.

 *  You see the bull up close, see its nostrils flared,  feel its mighty heart slowing.  For one moment you feel like a god.  Then suddenly, life is pulled from you like a hankerchief then you breathe and its back again and your wife is telling you to quit fooling around and finish washing the dog. 

 *  You purposely seek to have your friend Charles get the larger kill just so you can be bitter about it.

  *  You fall into a black ass when you don't have a black ass.

  *  Your daily trips to the mall Santa to ask for a black ass is beginning to trouble your wife.

  *  You've decided to experiment with hair length and you're bald.

  *  You're a lawyer and no matter who you represent you defend Ezra Pound.

  *  You narrate Hemingway the Mini-series like its a home movie.

  *  You cruise lesbian bars to find your mother a 'Ruth Arnold'.

  *  Every year during the holidays instead of sending your Aunt Gertrude a card you send a telegram that read 'A bitch is a bitch is a bitch.'

  *  You keep adding to your 'You Know...' post even though no one is reading it.

  *  Papa Doble and you continue to get in arguments over who is more 1930s Papa.

...You lie down in the foyer and force your wife to practice "finding you."

...You practice speaking French, Spanish, and Oak Park English with equal intensity.

...Lacking elephants, you kill eighteen cockroaches to get back at your long-dead father.

...On your Christmas wishlist, you include "Concussion."

 

Merry Christmas, everyone!

 

Steve

  * You're enraged that despite your 'African book' being out - Papa Doble insists on reading Islands in the Stream first.

  * You've added a beard to the baby Jesus in your nativity scene outside your church.

  *  You inist your wife must kill 'her lion' before celebrating Christmas.

  Happy Holidays, Papa-ites!!!

...You feel like you've failed Papa whenever you use adjectives other than "Good" or "True."

...You, like Nick Adams, also decide that you will "try mashing at least once."

...You forbid the other posters at LostGeneration.com from quoting from your private messages in their never-to-be-written biographies about you. 

...You refer to the Nick Adams Stories as the "Me Stories."

  * Every Thanksgiving has been ruined when a Papa friend mentions Hadley and you say, "I should have died before I loved someone else."

  * You post a black and white pic of youself smoking on the HRC with 'See!  Told you!' typed underneath it.

  *  Your wife screams 'You love Hemingway more than me!' and it really doesn't bother you(and you smile inwardly).
