The usual typical things
by Royal Hopper
It’s a long day in the city of Sin and you curse a little as the group of tourist stumble onto the road giggling as they walk and then a 9-year-old dashes across the busy Sin City road smiling like 30 pounds of cuteness with eyes as the Toyota in the right lane misses her by ten feet.
Its cool by desert standards almost pleasant like the weather spirits are waiting to spring the bad news of 110 degree days and the images of pale tourists from Canada and Idaho passing out in the desert sun.
Like most days driving down the streets of Sin City you see the obvious, usual things.
As you drive you might notice the group of yuppie hipsters in their trendy $300 cut downs playing catch with bottle of $10 beer while the groups token Goth rolls her eyes at them stumbling toward their cars with inane giggles on their drunken faces.
Ahead of them more tourists with crew cuts all wearing the same cammo bal caps advertising a feed store in Nebraska. Gis or Marines on a Holiday ??? Football players with bad fashion sense ??who knows..
As you leave the burbs you curse a little as a child darts across the road through traffic because her parents are off making bets on a four team parley and groups of tourists standing in the median while locals late for work honk at them and scream obscenities while they wave and struggle to get just the right focus of their friends standing on the sidewalk with their favorite bar in the background.
Jesus saves says one sign held by a man standing in the road ..Homeless Hungry says another sign held by a man who walks out into traffic as cars stop for traffic light.
You see the usual things as you drive down a street in Sin City. You see two working girls having words with another as she walks the opposite way down the boulevard. You see the usual things as you drive past the police cars with lights flashing and the younger of the hardened group of Sin City’s finest standing by the car looking a bit pale and ill as they examine the scene of an accident. You see the usual things and then you turn down the road toward your workplace for another day of work in the City of Sin.
That’s life in Sin City Baby
