She Was Right.

Written by sally @ 3:49 pm — Section: sally

Today for lunch I ate at the barbeque place. The tables are always a little sticky there, but it’s pretty good and all the tables are mashed together so you can overhear everything everyone else is talking about. In other words, it is heaven.

At the table next to me was an old couple. He had on elaborately printed suspenders that matched her tapestry coat. I should note that it is 80 degrees today and the restaurant didn’t have their air conditioning on. It was probably the perfect temperature for olds.

They weren’t saying much. They were probably thinking about ration cards or rotary telephones. I was about to take a picture of his suspenders when the old lady opened her mouth.

“YOU NEED TO START USING THAT SHAMPOO AGAIN,” she yelled. “I CAN SEE FLAKES FROM HERE.”

The old man didn’t say anything. And then I took the picture.
