1. jeff was sitting outside talking to this lady who is always around talking to herself and drinking water and smoking cigarettes in the neighborhood. she told him she doesn't like the taste of beer, so she puts a little salt in it. it makes it taste better, she said. he came in and told me about it.
2. i ran into buddy eric and he showed me the book he just began reading:
3. while running a route i run at least three times a week, i noticed for the first time two huuuuuge piles of salt in a lakeside parking lot. i think it was salt. i think it was road salt, preparing for winter. maybe it's been there all along. or maybe it just arrived today.
