Wednesday morning at McDonald’s

It never fails. Every time I go to McDonald’s in the morning there’s ALWAYS a complete nut sitting across from me. Especially when it rains and McDonald’s turns into a homeless drop-in center.

The lunatic in front of me is sitting by himself talking non-stop, this crazy babble about “time-travel” and the “King James Bible” and “smoking meth” as he gestures wildly with his arms.

Actually it turns out he’s not as crazy as I thought. He’s actually talking to somebody. This woman who is lying on the seat across from him, passed out and hidden from view.

Then I’m startled by this loud, crashing sound. This homeless black guy has just slammed all his gear into the booth behind me.

“Did I scare you?” he asks, thoughtfully.

“No,” I said.

“Mmm, that sure is a lot of pancakes you got there,” he said, eyeing my breakfast. “You couldn’t spare those hash browns?”

“No, sorry.”

I take the first sip of my coffee and brace myself for the rest of my day.
