I FIND YOUR ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN CONFUSING
Have a “usual” food order somewhere is actual a little more embarrassing than you’d think. It’s like, I know you know I’m not an adventurous eater, but let’s just pretend just a little for the sake of these complete strangers around us.
I saw this picture on the metro bench this morning. The edges were soft and frayed, making it obvious it had been living in somebody’s wallet as a reminder of a person who made them happy. Or maybe two people. I couldn’t say for sure. Who are these people? Lovers? Siblings? Childhood friends? It’s unclear—nothing was written on the back of the picture.
And, maybe, what I find even more interesting than the unknown relationship between the two people in the picture is what led the picture to lay discarded on a metro bench. Was it purposely left there after a break up? Was someone showing a friend their children and the image somehow fell from their wallet as they moved to catch their train? I guess nobody can really say.
I forgot to wear my watch today so for all I know it’s half after deviled egg o’clock, Punctuary 78th 1912.
