Here and Now

By Mole

Baked, Toasted, and Fried

Found these leaves baked to a crisp on a vine growing inside the window of a garage in the alley behind the hardware store.

I’m toasted from a day of EVERYthing going haywire, right from the top. Which is why I thought I’d make an easy trip to the hardware store. Where the owner of an SUV blocked the narrow alley for everyone else by squatting directly facing the NO PARKING sign.

To the hardware store to get some things fixed. Large things. Things I barely got wedged into the car with the passenger seat all the way down. Things that visitors broke. Visitors that drive SUVs.

Now I’m fried to a cranky crisp.

Thinking our next car will be an SUV.
