Mined from the notebooks Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Posted Saturday, April 15.
Driving home from the bus depot north on 300. Large man in a small car pulls up next to us at a light. He’s wearing a hard hat. Has one of those little clipboards suction cupped to the dash. A GPS too. Windows wide open. Music playing. Latin singer I don’t recognize crooning a ballad in a deep, sultry voice I imagine is the voice of the Most Interesting Man in the World when he sings, which, of course, he does better than anyone else. Driver floors it when the light changes. I think I catch sight of a Hillary sticker in his rear window but he speeds away and gets lost from view in the traffic up ahead.
