So QT went to see Uncle Joe, as it has for the last 25 years, and knocked on the door to Apartment 330, where he has live all that time.
A woman came to the door.
"Where's Uncle Joe?" QT asked.
"He's in Apartment 331," she said.
QT went across the hall to Apartment 331 and knocked.
Uncle Joe came to the door.
"Uncle Joe," QT said. "What are you doing in Apartment 331? You lived in Apartment 330 for 25 years — and suddenly you're in Apartment 331?"
Uncle Joe looked at QT.
"I guess it's the gypsy in me."
Please come knocking for future QT columns starting Wednesday at The Beachwood Reporter.
And many thanks to some of the fine people at Chicago Public Media for their hospitality as QT moves on.
