In the morning, I wait at the bus stop and I think 1. It’s really cold... can we have a break? Just below freezing would be really nice for a while; 2. I am staring at the lot where the Westside Community Farmers Market sets up in better times.
You may think that this is a depressing thought. But no. Think of it: in three months, the market will replace the snow pile. Not bad!
In my office now.
I look out and I notice a tent out on Bascom Hill.
Oh! It’s taunting me! Na na, you just agreed to camp in the cold in Scotland! Look, look – does this look like fun?
Eh, it’s a coincidence. I know this tent is probably an ad for something.
I go out to look around. From every side it looks like – a tent. No ads.
Do you suppose it’s a warning?
Ridiculous. I need a good night’s sleep.
