Nothing stays the same in life
A man tells a woman a joke.They laugh. The woman her bumps elbow. She stops laughing. The man asks if she is okay. An emergency vehicle drives by with the sirens flashing. Both stop and in silence watch it pass. A mother pushing baby in a stroller walks by. They smile. The woman says she must go. They sigh and part. A flock of pigeons fly overhead. The man tries to remember why they were laughing.
