The Pillars Of The Earth Are At The Mall
Pillars Of The Earth
Actually, Linda did almost all the talking.
She went on to say that she’d worked for years for a multi-national technology company, then quit to run her own daycare, and now drives a school bus – the best job of all, she said, with a beaming smile that made me believe her.
And her mother had also been tall, with long legs, which it was evident she had also inherited (She has a 35-inch inseam. That’s the kind of detail you learn about someone when you’re chatting in a clothing store.)
She told me that one of her two sons, who’s twenty-something, has an illness that precludes him from travelling right now, but that he nonetheless is planning a trip to Cuba.
I said I hoped he had insurance in case he needed help to get himself back home, and Linda said he would be traveling without it. Linda’s great-great-great-grandfather came immediately to mind, and so did Ken Follett.
Well, I for one intend to go shopping more often.
