The Malevolent Pause

The bicycle tire thief took pause from his busy day to look me over…

He asked me something designed to ‘size me up’ and feeling obliged to not disappoint, I ignored him and continued walking; which predictably caused him to say something slanderous.

I asked him, “So you’re a tough guy?”

“Yeah, I’m a tough guy.” He said.

The thing about tough guys is they rarely advertise.
