i just had a wee bite off of harmony.
i was standing on my back step, lighting a cigarette, when i saw a car coming down the street with its lights off.
i took my lighter and waved its flame at the car (not even thinking the driver might see it).
as the car neared i could see the driver leaning over and squinting at me.
i felt i looked pretty stupid, so it made sense that the driver would wonder what the hell i was doing.
he swerved a bit, but drove on past.
i went from the step and around the corner of the back gate in about three seconds, because i thought the car was slowing down and i would need to explain to the driver why i was waving the lighter.
but when i caught sight of the car again as it was moving toward van ness i saw its lights were now on.
the driver got my message.
and i felt sure he was thinking wow i can't believe i figured that one out.
i laughed my ass off at the implausibility of both.
