Started out for the big supermarket eight blocks away. Noon. Very hot. The streets were nearly empty. It was a holiday. He came out and stood against the door frame. A baby boomer like me. I crossed the street.
“Any green peppers?”
I bought two green peppers, one onion and three sodas.
“Business pretty slow, huh?”
“What can you do?”
I was glad that before I left another customer came in.

I wrote this post in my notebook as I sat in the lobby of my apartment building and I looked out at the foot and motor traffic on the avenue. It’s around 10:30 AM, the day windy and rainy.
The apartment building is very quiet. I wonder where everyone is. I don’t want to wait too long before going across the street for some supplies. Since this is Labor Day, the store across the street will probably close early. There seems to be a lot of motor traffic on the avenue for this to be a holiday.
I guess Labor Day is not a major holiday.
Keep reading flash fiction and keep writing.
