Best of May: stormy weather and bygone romance
It’s time for the official statistics revealing this blog’s most popular items for May, and I’m proud to note that readers didn’t just go for cheap yuks, they went for the high-class stuff, too.

Most gratifying of all, the month’s number one item was my human interest yarn about the Love Market in Vietnam, where you can meet former lovers for one day a year and your spouse isn’t allowed to be jealous. This is the one I’m selling to Hollywood for $4 million, so somebody had better get busy writing that check.
Here they are, the top 10:
