I posted this a while back. I found it odd that someone would give a homeless guy who was begging for money, cake mix of all things. I just couldn't figure it out. Still haven't.
I drove by this intersection again the other day and there was another homeless man standing there. He had a sign. The sign said,
"Bank Robber. Need money for bullets."
I laughed and the homeless man/bank robber motioned for me to roll down my window.
I did and he shouted that he liked my sense of humor and he loved my hair. He told me that if my husband didn't treat me right I should come back and see him. I drove home that same way several times with my camera looking for him so I could post his sign. He is gone. I can't find my boyfriend.
This reminded me of an essay Tanner once wrote about doing a good deed.
He wanted to be sure I didn't plagiarize and I gave him full credit, so...the following is an original essay by my son Tanner when he was in the fifth grade.
First my mom and I thought of a good deed. We decided to give sack lunches to hobos. To do this we had to make lunches. I got to spend good quality time with my family. The lunches had turkey and ham sandwiches, chips, fruit, a drink and cookies.
Next we got in the car and drove off to look for hobos. That night it was really cold. I did not think we would see any people because of the cold. We did see two guys under an overpass near a Waffle House. Hobos like the Waffle House. They looked starved and they were. I called the first man over and said, “We made you this lunch. Merry Christmas”. He said, “God Bless You,” and smiled. Later we saw him walking away from the overpass. A few minutes later we saw a guy carrying a sack and I gave him the other lunch.
This made me feel happy that I did a good deed. It was my destiny to give these people their lunches. I was happy for the hobos because they got to eat that night. It also made me very sad. It only took about thirty minutes. The reason I picked this good deed is because it is no fun to be hungry on the holidays. Now after reading this you might get hungry go ahead eat I don’t care.
So there you have it. Hobos like Waffle House. And faux hawks.
And Tanner doesn't use transition words.
