   Sometimes, he thinks he might know a little something, but most of the time he feels more or less lost in the mystery. She says he spends too much time wool gathering. She is probably right. 

   An egg sans yolk with two slices of toast and a cup of juice and coffee. His standard breakfast for years. He likes his routines. Yet, his life is replete with discrepancies, a tendency toward nonconformity.. She thinks he is mostly side stepping the issues, and is not taking a more responsible approach. She may be right.

   He likes to think that he thinks outside the box. Though the mere notion of thinking that you are thinking outside the box is mostly a cliched means of box thinking. He likes to chase his tail. She wonders what breed of dog he may be.

    Middle aged and living by himself and with his self, he finds himself reasonable company.  Though for a couple of years,, almost every night he goes to a coffee house three blocks from his home. To visit,, and possibly play a game or two.

    He works out of his home. Painting pictures in oils and acrylics. It has always proved a challenging way to make an income. He is thinking about some type of part time work. Though the dandelions are mounting an impressive display in his front yard, he knows a quick mowing will check the situation.  She thinks he is kinda cute.

    He enjoys a good outward laugh.  Though laughing with something is somewhat different than laughing at something. He tries to be careful. Though he knows that it is human nature to make mistakes. He smiles, as he grabs an umbrella and walks out the door.
