Man in black

December 22, 2008


“So what do you think of my $140 coat?”

“You look spectacularly Darth Vader-ish, I have to say.”

“One of my customers got it for me. He said ‘I’m tired of seeing you out here shivering all the time. So my wife and I, we went and bought you this coat — you’ll be warmer now. You know, he actually bought me a new coat and he paid $140. I can’t believe it.”

“Do you know his name?”

“Nope. But I’ve actually known him for a while.”

    lovely story Tony.. I certainly hope you’re spending much of the day
    *and these night/s* inside somewhere warm..

    Keep bundled up and moving – warm food or drink helps.. but you know that.

    I didn’t have the presence of mind to take a photo. I will and I’ll post it.

    I saw Tony yesterday and he had his same old jacket on.Guess he left his new one at his residence so he could look more like a homeless guy while he asks you for your hard earned money.

    Lots of warm good things for each of you in the new year.

    And especially to you Tony! ONLY MIRACLES xox 🙂
    (even though I know you’re an angel in disguise.

    I hope you stop shivering soon Tony…I think of you often, when I grumble in the snow. Take care.
