Yesterday I had a few extra hours before work. I am very broke, but had a few extra dollars so I treat myself to a breakfast sandwich from a downtown food cart, something I had yet to do in this city after 2 years. It was greasy and I had to pick the cheese off the wrapper, but it was delicious. I took the bus to the area near my work and spent an hour and a half sipping coffee at my favorite coffee shop. I built a paper dinosaur and read East of Eden before going to work. It was grey and rainy and I had to tighten my scarf as I walked.
Today I will just admit that it is fall and wear my pea coat.
Yesterday it was really hard to think about leaving this place. I hope San Jose is as kind to loiterers and literary nerds.
