Yesterday, my coworker and I went to lunch at a small pizza parlor. We were finishing up when an African-American woman (about 50) walked in with a heavy set white woman and man guiding her by her shoulders. They all stood at the counter to place an order. She scanned the dining area, spied two burly, blue-color workers, older guys, sitting at a table an arm's length away.
"Well, helloooo!" She shouted, leaned back, squinted, and tried to focus on their faces. They nodded and bellowed hello.
My coworker and I got up to leave, and were taken aback by the woman's backside. She was letting it all hang out in short-short ripped jeans that were two sizes too small.
As I walked by the men, I raised my eyebrows and subtly nodded in the woman's direction. I mouthed, "OH MY!"
The guys said, "Uh-huh!"
I wonder... do you think she was there to buy or sell?
Today the police pulled up out front and then a hearse pulled into our neighbor's driveway two doors down. I don't know the details, but I do know it was the gentleman about my age who passed away, because his wife, a teacher, was outside crying.
Have you seen anything this week that seared an image?
