It’s the 21st of December, 2012, the Winter Solstice,
or the last day on Earth if you follow the Mayan calendar;
I pull into Hardee’s and order a plain egg biscuit and a Senior Cup o Joe – 64 cent coffee,
a lasting benefit to getting old.
I was given a sausage biscuit.
Upon returning the mistake, the lady was profusely apologetic.
“No prob” I said, “It’s not the end of the world.”
