Cranberry bagel – toasted. Cream Cheese. Diet Coke.Posted: May 26, 2010
I’m driving out for breakfast.
A midget walks down the street. He is smoking. They say smoking stunts your growth. Well, there you have it.
Another man pushes an empty wheelchair down the street. I watch him cover several blocks. I’m waiting. Waiting for him to realize he has forgotten someone. It never happens.
I go to the counter at the bagel shop. A person who I’ve never seen before comes to take my order. She asks, “The usual?” I say yes, curious what will happen when my order comes. She gets it right.
I drive back toward my office.
The wheel chair is still empty. It is still being pushed, 6 blocks further from grandma.
The little person is still smoking. That really isn’t helping.
I have my own page in the bagel basic training manual. Or maybe I am just predictable.
