On the other side of the International Dateline
my credit card balance is zero
the Astros have just swept the Nationals for the 2019 World Series crown
I have made my last car payment
my first novel has debuted at #1 on the New York Times’ Best Seller List

men admire me
women adore me
wild animals feed from my hand
the Fat Lady has announced she will give no more performances
and Elvis is still in the building
