Chicago

Part 1

I have been lazy about getting to the grocery store these past few
weeks, and I am in a bad habit of buying my Greek yogurt at the 711
steps away from work. Today I was motivated to break that habit when
the woman in line ahead of me used her pepper spray in the store directed at a homeless man asking for
change. My eyes are still watering.

This old greystone

Part 1

Two squirrels used to live in the rundown 3-flat next door. They made a home for themselves in the abandoned third floor. They also believed that every potted green plant on my back porch was their yearly crop. Builders have now begun remodeling the 100-year-old greystone, and the squirrels have moved out. Surprisingly I miss the rascals, even though they have caused yearly fits where I have bound outdoors waving my hands like a madwoman to get them out of my tomatoes.
