My back is aching once again, but I am not nearly as a) exhausted or b) hungry as I have been in the past week or so. I brought a half pint of blueberries to snack on today, and ate them at my afternoon break. They seem to have done the trick -- I'm not even thinking about dinner!I am, however, thinking about my back, which is coyly leaning toward a spasm, but lingering on the edge, just to remind me that it has all the power in this relationship. Uncomfy -- think I'll run a bath when I get home.
"Do you need an umbrella?"
I indicated the umbrella I was holding. In my hand.
He said confidentially,
"I seem to have two."
And although I could see by looking that he did not have two, I replied, "So do I!" pointing to the little collapsible in my bag pocket.
He sat down on the bench, and remarked,
" I usually wait at the coffee shop down our way, but there's all that construction going on, so I had to come and wait here."
