Lifetime Piling Up


I was leaving the office today when I happened to strike up a conversation with the parking lot attendant. “What are you always doing with all of those books?” he asked me. I told him that it’s my job to read. “Wow, don’t you get bored reading all day? I think I’d fall asleep!”

I looked at this man who spends eight hours a day in a parking booth, and I tried to see things from his perspective. He was wearing heavy, fleece gloves (50 degrees out here today), with the same slapdash grin that's plastered to his face every time I see him. I told him I drink a lot of Diet Coke to keep me awake and left it at that.
