City Life

I got home tonight at about 8 p.m., got off the train and was walking back to my place. Lovely summer evening, warm but not too warm, fading light turning everything rosy and soft.

A guy skates past me on the street. Rollerblades, goggles, a backpack.

In his left hand, held straight out, he held a pair of these.

In the opposite arm, cuddled close to his body, he had a live pet rabbit.

I love this town so much sometimes.

  1. Now that’s healthy living. About the only thing that could improve it would be a nice shiraz in his CamelBak.

  2. Sounds like something I would see in New Orleans – and wouldn’t bat an eye, but I would smile! 🙂 Afterall, I saw a guy in a suit and a bunny-lucha-libre mask bicycling down Chartres one day…it was fab. 🙂
    I would like to hope that seeing something like what you describe is a good omen for this country…so, I will!

  3. Better copyright that post or it will end up in the ferret-plagiarists next book.
