Winter Solstice


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.”
