Gary reported that there was a hole in one of the walls at Artie’s new shore house, so Artie explained that he was working on his book until really late and when he woke up, he was still tired. He promptly lost his balance while trying to put on his shoes and fell into a wall. Artie said he also picked up some kind of weird rash after their trip to Afghanistan. Gary was shocked: “I did too…I wake up in the morning and my torso is itchy. It gets all red.” Howard laughed that they’d probably picked up scabies – for charity.
