Another sighting on South Temple

Over the years we've encountered all kinds of things on our early morning walks down South Temple, including men with pants issues.  As in they can't keep them on.  But today we saw a guy with no pants at all.  Instead he was wearing a hospital blanket held up with a leather belt, and he was carrying a catheter.  The weird thing about this is that he was also wearing a nice dress shirt and he'd combed his hair.

So it was hard to tell exactly what was going on.

I said hello.  I always say hello to people carrying catheters on South Temple.  But he didn't respond.  He just kept right on walking past us with a scowl on his face as though he was saying, damn.  I didn't expect to run into people while not wearing pants this morning on South Temple.

We didn't know what to do.  Check in with the various hospitals nearby to see if someone has gone missing this morning?  Ask if he needed help?

But instead we just walked on by.  Marveling.

A good morning, indeed.

Maybe he was pissed off at missing the "Nurses Day" festivities yesterday...or maybe the Nurses Day festivities got a little out of hand, playing games like "pin the catheter on the no-pants guy." Happy belated nurses day to all the nurses out there, btw.

I'm real glad you're walking in a small unit. That's how I am, worried about you walking early in the morning on South Temple, amongst the possibly pantsless.

"I always say hello to people carrying catheters on South Temple. But he didn't respond. "

The best sentence EVER!

Emily, ^ yes!

I suppose he'll be making his way to a bookstore any moment.
