I was excited as we rolled onto the strip. We parked in an alley next to a man sitting on the curb with his head in his hands.
"Boy, what's wrong with him?" I asked, giddy with the adventure of it all.
"He probably lost it all," my friend said. I looked at the man with pity.
Twenty minutes later I knew exactly how he felt.

"You live where?" he demanded.
"That's clear across town," he sputtered when I gave him my address.
"And don't feed him!" he added. "Ill try to come get him."
He did come to pick up Scurvy Jack a couple of hours later and he did say thanks, but jeese....

Me: "What are we going to do?"

I tend to avoid movie theatres where children go. Yesterday though we went to a kid's movie (WALL E) at 11:00 in the morning and yep, there were kids. (summer vacation and all). I hunkered in with my popcorn lunch prepared for the worst.
It was kind of refreshing. Kids laughed out loud, they gasped and at the end they clapped! Very unlike the silent hoards of adults at indie theatres where we are just much too cool to show anything like pleasure or dismay or (gasp) appreciation.
