Return to What do you do? (idea)
|The man sat down at the table and his lunch date, a business associate, smiled up at him. |
Hey, how are you? Are you having a good day?
"OK," he said, "busy, but OK..." He was in a bit of hurry, and was studying the menu.
What do you do, - not here, not Work/work..I mean what do you do ..what is your life, what is your hobby?
"I write" he said, a little shy, looking away briefly..."its what I do, I write things."
hmm= interesting..what do you write? what kind of things?
"odd things, little stories, poems, lots of things..."
well, she said, give me something..tell me a story about me... She leaned forward, eyes bright-curious.
No, she laughed, not that kind of writing..I thought you meant writing...
"Shhh,"he said putting a finger to his lips...not looking up
and this is what he wrote in the drawing of the hand that he had traced around her hand:
These are the fingers that shake the hands of her clients-
He scooted it across the table to her and took a sip of his iced tea
and she just sat there a long time-quiet.
