is now up at 'beat the dust'
i am really happy with the way the story looks.
i am waiting for a printer to arrive. i am sitting by my window, eyeing up every roughly van shaped vehicle that goes by, thinking, this could be it.
they have all driven by.
a really large lorry stopped in front of the row of houses that i live in. a man got out and started unstrapping the thick fasteners on the side of the canvas of the container.
i thought, 'this can't be it, coming in such a big lorry.'
the man got out a parcel that was the right size to contain a printer. i kept thinking 'this isn't happening'.
he took the parcel down the road to somewhere else, fastened up the clips again, and drove off into the rest of his life.
i am still waiting.
i was hoping that at the end of this blog post i could say, 'i know it seems crazy, but the parcel came while i was typing the post up.'
going to stop now.
