I told myself that I wasn't going to do it, but I needed a break so I went downstairs to the mall to window shop. I ended up in a Japanese stationary store, it is amazing. I bought a French branded letter set and a pen. I'm going to write letters to my progeny and include hand drawn pictures of fruit ala Animal Crossing.
Someone gave me ten bucks for beer money and as I was getting out of my jeep at the corner store I heard someone yell my name. It was the guy who stands at the corner opposite who I exchange a couple words with every day at the red light on my way home. His first words were, "Hey, I never get to actually talk to you."
So that kind of made my day, I've never given him money before (I never carry cash) but he always seems excited to see me - this time I gave him my what-was-soon-to-be-beer money.
About fifteen minutes later I drove by again since I left something at work and he was yelling loudly at a luxury car then kicked his styrofoam cup full of ice six feet into the air at them.
