Seen on the ground next to a bus bench: two used pregnancy test kits and an empty pack of smokes.
The conversation that went with them? Maybe this is how it went…
“Can I bum a smoke?”
“Sure, but not if you’re pregnant.”
“Okay.” Pees on tester. “See. Not pregnant.”
“Maybe. But you got that from the Dollar Store, so how do we know it’s accurate?”
“Cuz I got two of them. I’ll do it again. This time you hold it, to prove I’m not messing with it.”
Pees on second stick. “See. NOT pregnant.”
Wipes pee-wet hand on own shirt. “Fine. Here’s a smoke. Do you need a light, Steve?”
“Nah. I’m good.”
That’s it, that’s all.
Ciao for now,
