At De La Concha yesterday we congratulated Tom on his publication of an arcane financial piece in the prestigious journal CPA. About the only thing I understood in it was his by-line, but I have no doubt his words will shake Wall Street as no other article has in the past, uh, two hours.
In the middle of this smoke-filled celebration, Tom's wife, Laura, showed up. She suggested the very best way to celebrate this great success is to go down to So Ho. To do some shopping. Like, say, for a ring that she wants made to her specifications at Lazaro Jewelry, 54 Mercer Street.
Tom, being acutely perceptive, agreed. So off we went, the three of us.
