Happy Monday, Stay Beautiful

It wasn't the words he was singing so much as that he was on the phone when I rounded the corner. "I'll call you back," the stranger says into his phone.

And then he starts singing at the top of his lungs.

She's got legs, she knows how to use them
She never begs, she knows how to choose them
She's got a dime, all of the time
Stays out at night, moving through time

I keep moving down Fifth Street, but do a full turn to salute him in thanks, netting me a spoken word compliment before he goes back to singing. "Your legs are as gorgeous as your face."

Shorts weather has been very, very good to me this December.


  1. Apropos of nothing in this post I wanted to tell you 2 things. 1, thanks for writing about the Christmas on the Rocks play. It was great! 2, I know you write for local papers and wanted to let you know about a small family run business that might make an interesting story. Watch, Pen and Pencil out on Hull St near Courthouse. I've been going there for jewelry repair, watch batteries, etc for close to 15 years. Very old school and run by the nicest proprietor. For some reason it struck me as your kind of place. Happy Holidays! Sharon

  2. Good to know! Thanks for the heads up. Happy holidays to you, too, Sharon!
