Tax time

There’s still time to get those income tax returns to the post office, even if you’re filing from the South Pole. I mailed mine this morning, which is early for me. You can usually find me close to midnight with all the other procrastinators at the main post office in New York (the one with “neither rain nor sleet . . .” inscribed on it). This year I’m blaming the penguins, who held me, my house and my life hostage until just before Easter. So what was my excuse last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, etc.? Next year, I promise, I’ll do better. I might even file electronically.
