Charles sat and waited on strangers.
Anyone who hesitated at the door would be waved over. And he pretended to be everyone — a date, a potential recipient of a lawsuit, a drug pusher, and the third person disrupting a happy marriage.
It was a new routine he had to make human connection after his wife left him.
He was addicted to this human connection business. He wouldn’t stop at the game, even if it meant a punch in the face.
He was a new man, everyday.
