1. my first girlfriend lost her virginity in the restroom here. 2. the drive-thru intercom has the voice of god, but makes only half the mistakes. 3. the sidewalk is a poor kid's christmas: one flip- flop, fire sauce, napkins. 4. in the mazda in front of me, middle-aged men snort meth off a parking brake. 5. I don't know if it's any easier the longer you're not dead - that's why God, or the intercom, made the dollar menu. 6. for most of us there are worse borders we could be running to.
