At the corner of third and Pine, on a grate, sat four women in black business suits. One of them had her legs stretched out in front of her, tennis shoes on the ends of her black stockings. Everyone was frowning except the lady with the tennis shoes, who was looking sheepish.
I walked a little bit away and waited for my bus. After a while, maybe 10 or 15 minutes, an ambulance pulled up. It parked on our side of the street, facing the wrong way, and all the women except the one with the tennis shoes stood up. The paramedics hopped out and one knelt down next to her.
I meant to pay attention to what happened next, but then my bus came and I went home.
