Send me to Paris.

I love Paris in the fall.

So here's the deal: I'm turning sixty. My knees are still good. What lights me up is the idea of spending some time in Paris. (There's an all-women show at the Pompidou this year, and I want to commune with all the fine, scantily-clad statuarial babes.)

It's hella irresponsible. I really can't afford it. On the other hand, when I look back on this milestone, will I regret being responsible and staying home? Yes, yes I will.

So that's where you come in: Send me to Paris, and know that you are adding to the happiness in the world.

Thanks, dear ones.
