Mister Ron's Basement #1532
This week, we are reading from Gelett Burgess's oblique peek at social mores from 1902, 'The Romance of the Commonplace.'
Today's piece is not one of our funniest, but is definitely one of our best, and most thought-provoking! Try to follow Burgess's thoughts as they reach out via an amazing tangent spurred on by 'Black Coffee.'
You'll probably want to listen to this one twice.
Time: approx ten minutes
