An old friend emailed me late Wednesday as we had agreed the previous day to catch up on the telephone, and when I noted that I had been on the phone earlier in the day with another old buddy, he smarked: "I guess you and Bill Shatner had a lot to talk about."
My only possible retort:
"What a great ambassador he was.
I'd go up if 'they' retrograded me to a fetus, popped me into a translucent egg-shaped container, and left me floating around the Earth....
'I will think of something.' "
