So leaving Safeway today, I bought a copy of Real Change from the old black guy that I always talk to — seriously, he’s the sharpest guy in the U District — and he looks up and me and asks: “Do you go to church?”
Me: “What?”
Him: “Do you go to church?”
Me: “You taking an informal poll?”
Him: “No, I was just wondering if you went to church.”
Me: “Yes, as a matter of fact, I do. Blessed Sacrament just a few blocks from here.”
He pulls out a wad of bills and hands them to me.
Him: “Go put this in their donation box.”

True story.

There’s a ultra-rare thunderstorm going on in Seattle right now.  Baby hail is falling in my yard.  It’s like an Ozarks storm with training wheels.  I want to pinch its little cheeks.
