Doing all right for now. The percoset is a trade off of 'I will be able to breatheand walk' aand 'I will not be able to do any work I need to be doing and will possibly fall asleep anywhere'.

This is the second McCarthy I've read, the first being The Road, so it's great being able to compareand ccontrast his writing in each story. I absolutely love him as an author now, and it really isintere sting reading the violence with an almost clinical detachment. It somehow makes it more sickening.
