Coffee: Guatemalan Extra Dark Roast, Trader Joe’s Brand
Ten is an ominous number. You’ve lost the simplicity of 1-9, don’t have the security of a 20 or 30. Anyway…
They’re building a new bridge across our stream. It’s depressing. I liked the old wood bridge. It had gotten green from weathering. It was a good place to stand around and do nothing. The stream is usually low. Some neighborhood kids got these big buckets full of water and filled them up with tiny fishes. They told me the fish would dry out. They were trying to save them. See ya later, old bridge.

“Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build bridges even when there are no rivers.” – Nikita Khrushchev, quote that came up when I googled ‘bridge quotes’
