Davey in Eb Minor
Over the next few weeks, Davey met Jack in several places, just to hang out. They went out to eat, to the movies, once, and a few times just walked around the MoMA together. He was easy to be around, Davey laughed a lot when they were together, and Jack always had things to say.
When they were in the MoMA, Jack had stories about every exhibit.
“When we were working with the people who helped us get this one, there was this one guy who wanted us to literally change the walls so he could organize the paintings exactly how he wanted. We’ll do whatever we can to make it look right, but this is a permanent wall.”
“This one was supposed to be temporary, and then the artist got into a fight with their agent and like two weeks later sold it to us to spite the agent, so now it’s ours. And it’s awesome.”
“Okay, see that lady looking at the Dali over there? She comes in every Saturday, and on the second Saturday of every month she comes to my office and tells me the story of how she discovered the MoMA when she was sixteen. She used to go to my boss, but she got tired of hearing the story over and over, she now the lady comes to me. All I know is that her name is Millie and the year was 1967.”
