Browncroft Sale, 2015

the biennial Browncroft Sale is the comic con of western upstate new york weekend yard sales. everything from fish tanks to used breast pumps and Barbara Streisand records are for sale.

i was hoping to find some budget mtg cards in an unmarked white box and a warm saxophone lounging on a verdant lawn, but instead i got some floral embroidered luggage, some free hats and a Studio Projects Cardioid Microphone for $20. Still a decent haul.

its a  lil early to plan for 2017, but an app would make strategizin’ much easier.

check out my slipshod documentary below:

The Man Whose Mother Died Today

lou got to work on time at 6am today and smoked a cigarette with The Man Whose Mother Died Today

they talked and smoked and then attended to their respective duties before their respective coworkers arrived:

lou got his mop and filled his bucket with industrial strength cleaner and hot water

The Man Whose Mother Died Today began reupholstering his sofas and armchairs

 

when i arrived to work on time at 7am i believed The Man Whose Mother Died Today had been injured:

he was a whimpering heap on the pavement, surrounded by concerned coworkers

he couldn’t lift his head, he couldn’t stand.

he couldn’t open his eyes, he couldn’t take his hands away from his face.

he didn’t care who saw him, he didn’t care where he was.

his mother was dead.

 

if The Man Whose Mother Died Today is injured, why are his coworkers just standing there?
i thought as i ate from a plate of turkey bacon

lou was behind me with his mop and his bucket
wher did u get that turkey bacon brao?
he asked

what happened to The Man Whose Mother Died Today?
i asked

hees mother died today
he said

 

The Man Whose Mother Died Today was forcibly propped up by his coworkers

his eyes were still closed and his head hung limp

The Man Whose Mother Died Today’s coworkers had to lift his head for him and pour water into his mouth for him

his phone was in the same position on the concrete where he dropped it when it told him his mother had died

 

lou said:

if my mother died i would be like that too!

i would want to know where they had my mother!

if my mother died i would be on the floor too!

i wouldn’t be able to breathe!

i would be crying and screaming for my mother!

 

but his coworkers couldn’t swallow for The Man Whose Mother Died Today

they couldn’t upholster for The Man Whose Mother Died Today

The Man Whose Mother Died Today would have to learn to do everything again. without his mother.

i traded lou a strip of turkey bacon for a cigarette as The Man Whose Mother Died Today began crawling on his own.

soon he would be speaking and walking again. and drinking and upholstering again.

and he would do it this time without his mother, who died today.
