I loved this line: “It was one of those one of those middle-of-the-day middle-of-the-week nothing doing afternoons…“
This reminded me of a previous passage about on the benefits of Long Lunch Breaks.
So here’s to afternoon showers, and afternoon naps, long lunches, indulgent breakfasts, long walks, reading in cafes, directionless drives, and playing hooky in general.
And, of course, to more lazy afternoons.
Meyer came back on screen one afternoon in May, when Reles and some friends were hanging out at Buggsy Goldstein’s pool hall. It was one of those middle-of-the-day middle-of-the-week nothing doing afternoons that, in small towns and on the outskirts of big cities, comes to even the most important men.
