- •Sitting on the balcony after eating the spiciest curry I've ever made (not intentional, but not unwelcome)
- •And drinking a glass of stale red wine
- •A neighbor is blasting Sinatra
- •It feels like it's bouncing off of everybody's windows, reverberating through the hills
- •Somewhere else, on some other balcony just within earshot a woman is laughing, and there's a man's voice mixed in
- •Then she says "that's awesome" in this somehow loud but sighing voice
- •My toes are cold
- •And the light is almost perfect, just needs like 15 minutes.
