Today I saw some things.

Today I saw two old men in a café sitting opposite each other looking sideways at an automatic door as it opened and closed. They smiled as it almost shut then opened again for no apparent reason. They said nothing to each other and avoided eye contact as they continued to sip their drinks.

Today I saw a car screech to a halt at a crossing and sound its horn. A youth had evidently swaggered across the road in an all too common act of arrogant defiance to common sense. The car’s passenger exited the vehicle and faced off against the youth. They bumped chests like baboons vying for a mate. I turned and walked away.

Today I saw some things.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
