Bikini Girls and Rocket Ships
While Michel Desjoyeaux was crossing the Equator and enjoying his 35th day at the top, Marc Guillemot made his comeback in the leading quartet, which he had left just two days after the start… These two sure have come a long way – tales of reincarnation definitely have their charms, and one might remember that Jimmy Webb’s classic song "Highwayman", whose central topic is multiple lives, includes the following verses: "I was a sailor, and I was born upon the tide (…) when the yards broke off they said that I got killed, but I am living still."
A few weeks back, might have said that Mich’ got killed when his ballast broke off hours after the start, but he’s definitely living still as well and rose from his ashes as the Phoenix would have done – and by the time one gets to Phoenix, well a lot of things can happen. Right, all we need now is some county lineman connection of some sort (a reference to Wichita will do too) for good measure, so email us your ideas because we’re a bit dry for that last one. Time to move on then.
