OFF THE CUFF

Guy 1:  “So I told her, ‘yes, this is my first time too…’ “

Guy 2:  (Laughs).

Guy 1: “She said she was nervous;  I said yea me too, but we’ll go slow…”

Guy 2: “Whatever it takes, dude.”

Laughter and high fives.

ON THE GROUND FLOOR

Man pumping gas:  (Silence).

Female Companion: “….and if you had not flunked out of auto body, you dumb ass, we wouldn’t be in this mess.”

I look the man in the eye as he caps his tank, feeling as if I am invading his space.

Her voice is fading as she climbs inside the truck.   He looked back at me in  his rear view mirror.  My eyes asked him:

” How long has it been since you listened to her?”

What have you heard today?
