There had been some excitement at a South Hill grocery/natural living store.
An apparently disturbed individual had to be ushered out of the place.
I found myself talking to the manager about it. And I told her something one of the cashiers — a guy known for telling awful jokes — had said a few minutes earlier.
“He said he hoped he got the help he needed.”
After a moment, the manager asked if it was the cashier hoping to get help. Which gave me the opening to suggest it was too late for that.
Wondering what one of our neighbors was planning to build, I mentioned that “the kid” across the street had been using a power saw all day.
My wife was alarmed. She thought I was referring to that young man's preschool-age son.
Eventually, we got on the same page.
So far as I know, the little boy is not allowed to use the table saw.
