Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.

He wakes up. It is early. He has a driving test. He is ready for his driving test.  He gets on a bus. He gets off that bus and gets on another bus. His friend is driving there to the mva to meet him but when he gets there his friend tells him it is closed for the Labor Day but it is not Labor Day but it is a government workers holiday anyway so it is a wasted journey and his friend seems fine with it and they have breakfast at Silver Diner and then he learns that his friends car has a cracked windscreen so it would not have been useable for the test anyway but then they drive into town and they say goodbye and he meets with another friend who is leaving the city forever and they talk and drink coffee and eat donuts and fried chicken and it is heavenly and then he travels home but first he does some baby sitting and some talking about Syria and he tries to ignore the news but it is difficult to ignore the enws when he is addicted to knowing all about the news. Then he goes home and he reads and he eats and he doesn’t pack his bags for the next day and he falls asleep after booking an expensive last minute hotel.
