A man with a hat, a cigarette, and an X-ray nose.

July 18th, 2013, 8pm

It was 33.9°C. The breeze was light.

I’m rounding the corner from Lucali’s, the neighborhood pizzeria, with a large pepperoni, onion, mushroom, basil pizza. He is sitting cross-legged on a bench and, as I pass, lifts his nose and calls out –

“Pepperoni? And onion?”

I tell him the rest of what’s in the box and offer him a slice. He shakes his head and puffs his cigarette, and behind the cloud of smoke he smiles, or I think he does.

Amal, Craig, Chris, Frank and 4 others said thanks.
