Food For Thought

Did you ever play that game of inventing stories or backgrounds for strangers? You know, you see someone sitting alone in a restaurant and you imagine who they are, what they’re planning to do as soon as they finish this meal, why they are alone, what’s in that big tote bag on the floor at their feet. I used to try to guess where my fellow bus passengers were going and why. Were they going to somewhere and someone, or running away from something? Did that girl with her hands jammed deep into her pockets lose her gloves or did she give them to some homeless person?
