Lit rec #129: “Even so, as a day wears on, she becomes quite quarrelsome; she says she quarrels just to keep her liver regulated. ‘Quarreling is the only exercise I take,’ she says. She is a widow in her late sixties…” (1940s)

The funniest happiest anecdotes I’ve ever heard. Old New York. Old Mr. Flood stories from “Up in the Old Hotel” by Joseph Mitchell.
