So it's raining here in lost angeles. Stages of deluge and then clearing.
I had to/ got to walk a puganese this morning (pekinese and pug). IT WAS SOOOO CUTE. Its real name is Madison, but I call it jenny. Sometimes I will rename my pets.... like J.R. - I have renamed J.R.R.
Anyhoo, me and jenny were walking in the rain - she was a trooper although she didn't like it at first.
I'm southern. And I don't know if this is strictly a southern thing, but I say hello to people that I pass in the street or at least smile and acknowledge their presence. It is something I canna help. Many people don't say hello back... lots do.
Today, of course I especially said hello's because we were 'comrades in arms' as it were with the rain et al.
Well, I said hello to an old man.
He said "shit". That is all.
My response was 'yeah'.
Thirty seconds later I laughed a laugh I considered genuine and throaty.
