7:33 am

.. and i am standing in the tim hortons line.  Today is different.  It’s earlier, for one thing.  Today there is a homeless guy asking the people in the coffee line  for money.  He wanted to go to McDonalds. 

I don’t know why he wasn’t asking people in the McDonald’s line for money.

He didn’t get any change in the tim’s line.  There were whispers of calling for security.  The coffee dollies were tense.

The last person who was asked for change responded differently from the rest.  He swore.  In turn, the homeless guy became violent and hostile. Yelling of slavery. Racial words with little meaning, at 7:33 in the morning.  Before the first triple triple.

Tomorrow i will sleep in.

Perhaps Second Cup as well.
