The mailman dropped off a package this morning and his face was so red I felt I could take a tiny hammer and with one little strike the entire frozen thing would fall into my hand. Obviously I didn’t approach him with a hammer, though when he left I told him to stay warm. He said he’d try.
On my walk through the sky to work the magician was suspended over Donald St. As I passed him he was talking to a homeless guy. It seemed he’d just shown him a trick for free and the guy was happy to see how it was done.
