Their eyes were watching GOD.
So Ray and I went to the zoo today. As usual, after three hours of spazzing out, she fell asleep on the way home. She’d only been asleep for half an hour when I pulled up to the house, and I had a good book. I parked in the shade of a tree along the street and read.
About fifteen minutes later, a car pulls up in front of me and two men get out. They’re both wearing suits, and one of them is carrying a bible. They walk past my car, up the steps, and ring the bell at our house for a couple of minutes. Then they walk down the steps, get back in their car, and drive away.
A few minutes after they left, the guy next door started running his power saw again. One of those constant noises you don’t notice has stopped until it starts up again.
