my lunchtime in garland

The drive to Colter's BBQ. Big sign blown away by last year's wind has been replaced.
A Dallas Observer alternative paper, released on Thursdays. The short line, cafeteria style. "Turkey plate, no sauce". Green beans, corn on the cob.

Seat by the window, away from people. Cover story on Kristy Kruger, folk chanteuse, a myspace friend,whom I do not know at all, even in the loose form of myspace terms. I just liked her songs.

outside an animal barn at the actual Arkansas state fair, a thing almost as cool as the cool blue of Future Farmers of America jackets, which I never owned.

I idly wonder about Friday night-- a Kristy Kruger CD release party. The alternative paper says Kristy used to live in LA,as I did, but she went to study the music business. I was there for something to do with reinsurance and insurance company insolvency. I eat my corn, my green beans, my turkey, my roll. I go back to my office.
