“Good morning, Chuck. How is your day going so far?”

“The same. It’s always the same. I don’t want to be here, but I have to be. I bought a lottery ticket. I just tore it up. Nothing. If I won $5000.00 you wouldn’t see me again.

“I got a new pair of sunglasses. My eyes are very sensitive to light. Wouldn’t you know it, yesterday I forgot them at home. My eyes were so red and puffy I could hardly see, not that I can see much anyway. I watch the news on television, I look at the newspaper, but read mostly the headlines and a word here and there. Usually, I know most of the story already.”

I said to him, “I have an electronic reader.” I pulled it out and showed him how I can increase the size of the type.

“No, I’ve seen those before. I don’t like them.  The last time I read a book was seven years ago when I was in hospital. I started it in hospital, it took me a year to read it.”

I remarked, “It feels like there’s rain in the air. I wonder when it’s going to start?”

“I don’t care if it rains. I don’t care if we have twenty feet of snow.

“I saw this forensic investigation program last night. This guy murdered his wife using toothpaste. He distilled the chlorine out of it and injected it behind her cornea. One shot would have killed her, but he injected her twice. That’s how they caught on to him.

“It’s amazing how many harmful things are around us. I have to be extra careful walking Goldie. She could dart into a hedge and eat a poisonous plant. Then, of course, there are ticks. Mind you not all ticks are dangerous. We happen to be in a part of the country where there are blacklegged, or deer ticks that can cause lyme disease.

“I’m having some problems right now that I have to resolve. If I can get those sorted out, I’ll disappear. You won’t see me here again.”
