City sights on a Monday morning
1) A white-haired man stalking down Irving Park, angrily pointing a silver spatula at various cars and swearing loudly.
2) A woman struggling to carry a large silvery urn mounted on a marble base, on the El.
3) A woman struggling with two large boxes of fundraiser goods, also on the El. I wonder what percentage of school and scout fundraising sales are actually made by the parents, with the kids getting all the credit? I remember getting a badge in 3rd grade for selling Girl Scout cookies (the badge had a whale on it for unknown reasons). "Look at the badge I earned!" I said gleefully to my mom. "WHO earned?" she snarked back.
Also: you should read this post. It will make you furious and proud at the same time. A lot of people in this world suck. The author of the post is not one of them.
