a new broom sweeps clean, but an old broom knows the corner

Hey old lady, cover your mouth when you cough.

I can’t tell for sure, but I think you’re giving me dirty looks. Your sunglasses are too large for your face. Why do you keep looking at me, old lady? You are are wrinkled like a shar pei, but not as cute. almost. but not quite. Stop speaking your gibberish language to your husband. He doesn’t love you like i do. Clearly. Despite the dirty looks you cast upon me. I love your sunglasses despite the lack of sun. I love your leather gloves and high heeled shoes. On second glance perhaps those are not gloves. But i love them none the less. I love your gold coloured faux snake skin purse. I love the mink coat you wear while riding the streetcar. the college streetcar. You show these UofT students what life is all about. You just show them.

Wipe your nose again with the kleenex you’ve stuffed up your sleeve.
