Happy birthday to the blog’s office manager — Midori7!!!!

Every evening in our neighborhood, I see a middle-aged man — wearing a plaid shirt and carrying a plastic bag — making the long walk to the bus stop.
The next day, the man we call “Plaid” makes the walk from the bus stop.
And this has been going on for years.
My son and my nephew even wrote a rap song about “Plaid.”
Finally, I decided to find out where Plaid is going every day.
I mean, does he work in town or work in our neighborhood?
And why the plaid shirt?
I’m driving home and I see Plaid. I make a U-turn, then another U-turn, and I pull up 20 yards in front, the headlights still on.
I jump out of the car (OK, I pull my lard-arse out of the car), and I approach. “Hi, I’m Stephen, and I see you every evening and I just have to ask: where are you going?”
And he starts stammering, and sweat starts beading, and he keeps walking while saying: “To the bus stop. I’m going to the bus stop.” Then he starts sprint-walking away.
I go back to my car, my son is shaking his head, and I realized: I think Plaid thinks I was going to mug him.
