The Man in a Hurry
May 25, 2021
He needs to go to the bathroom. Jake. He is all dressed up. He's 16 or 15. Tie and suit, slacks.
He's outside somewhere. He's inside, I don't know. I don't know how you can figure he's inside. It looks to me like he's outside.
Shadows. His right hand might be filled with change. He's running to the toilet. His car keys, no telling!
He's dressed very formal. Yeah. He must be outside, that's a pipe along the wall. A drain pipe outside the building. In the window there, would indicate a room of some sort.
He's running for his life. His wife is screaming out here someplace. I don't know. It looks like he's screaming help. A very strange indicator.
He looks very formal, he's formally screaming. He's going to change his clothes. A similar outfit, but more casual.
He sat on the wall. He screamed. He's going to iron his clothes and get ready to go back to his job.
There's a little bit of light. His house is on fire. The fire engine is coming crazy down the road. He has to put up something so they can see!
He probably couldn't get out of the door. He panicked! For goodness sake someone, give him a rum and Coca-Cola!
