I’m still working at the store because of days like today. It started with me driving to work and as I drove I felt as if I had a flat tire on the front left. I pulled into a parking space on Elm. St. and after surveying the tire and seeing it was almost completely flat, Shannon pulled up across the street
and asked me what was going on and I told him and he said he was going to buzz to his house and get his compressor and said he’d have me fixed up in three minutes. He proceeded to inflate my tire to 36 psi in only a little more than the three minutes he had predicted. You have to know Shannon but the whole experience was cool. Shannon is an Irish gentleman of a kind, likes to have fun, is funny and is always hooking me up with good tv shows I can get, and novels. He and I have a similar taste in crime fiction. Anyway, he stopped and helped me out and I appreciated it.
The second cooler than always experience I had today was with my friend Alex, who is the sales guy for Farrels. When he came in , today, I asked him for the name of his pretty newly born son, and he told me what I thought to be the case, that his son’s name was Bruno. Alex is the kind of dad who is all in for his son, and we’ve talked before about kids and how they are. He told me today that Bruno tried to talk, to communicate with his parents, and was frustrated when he wasn’t understood. He so wanted to talk. Also, he wants to walk, although he’s only 4 mos old. When Alex holds him in the upright position he feels like he’s walking, and he likes it. He fights being moved to a more prone position. Anyway, there’s nothing like a father and son and it made me happy.
