Stranded at 711 in the Rain
I'm riding my bike when the rainstorm hits, halfway between the coffeeshop and home.
Under the 711 awning, a crowd has gathered.
We watch and watch and watch the rain. It seems we will be stuck here forever, eating banana chips and peanuts from the aisles, making frantic calls until our cell phones run out of batteries.
Finally, a lone girl departs.
I feel abandoned.
