and Why was she So Mad

July 26, 2017

I was pumping gas at the local Arco…when I felt this tug on my sleeve…saying “I AM Mad!!”….

 

looked down to see this ragamuffin with dirty curly blonde hair…with an open  bejewelled plastic purse…stuffed with plastic toys…she must have been 4 or 5…she looked Just like the young Shirley Temple…..

 

looked up to see this Tall, skinny,  young Brad Pitt looking man with dirty blonde hair and tats everywhere with a red gas can….

 

He said “Sir…I wondered if you could let me pump some gas…as I just don’t have any money…..”

 

His white old  Old Camry or Kia sat near the next  pump over….

 

I NEVER give money to people that ask for it…well that’s not totally true….but this time I was taken by such surprise by the young dirty Shirley Temple….that I said yes…..

 

At least he did not ask for money for drugs…but later thinking about it he was probably on his way to his drug dealer and ran out of gas….but Immediately erased that from my thoughts as one can NOT think so Negatively in these times…….

 

As he was pumping (and Gosh it went on FOREVER…that red plastic gas can seemed bottomless as I watched the numbers roll on the pump….)

 

Thinking of Shirley…I asked him does she “Tap”….and he thought I said “Rap”…..and said “no she no good at rap….”

 

I said NO I meant “TAP”…he said What the Hell is that……

 

I sighed and realized for my $15 plus bucks would NOT get to see Miss Shirley  Temple perform at the ARCO station in the middle of the desert….but Hey I am a dreamer……

 

After his can was filled he said “Bless You Sir”…..(I thought for a nano second….Well I DID get a blessing out of this….yeah that is so wrong….sigh…)

 

Miss Shirley as she was dragged off by this man with her bejewelled overstuffed open purse turned to me and said “I AM Mad”

 

and I Never asked Why???
