I can see it from here.
Sometime last week I was interviewed by a Lafayette news station. The reporter found me at the end of the day as the sun was about to set. After the interview we talked about how many days I might take to get to the city. He said it was forty miles. Two days later I realized we were still close to forty miles out. People were stopping who were from Lafayette and thought I had already passed thru. Sunday another guy from a different Lafayette station saw me as he drove by, again the sun was falling fast. He wanted to know when I'd get there. Monday the newspaper came. Same question. Today I somehow found myself stopping within sight of the road where , I am told, Lafayette "officially begins. I think it's safe to say I might possibly, perhaps, maybe, could be in Lafayette Thursday... Today is Wednesday, isn't it?
