# 4 - Southland Park
Status: 1 minute late

It was cold and raining in the morning, but since I had my good umbrella, I stood next to the covered benches. I had just seen the bus approaching from 5th Street when a woman came out from under the cover and said, The bus should be here soon, shouldn't it? I told her I could see it coming. She had a winter coat on but the hood was down. She carried a large faded book and a broom with a wooden handle and the straw bristles.

That's a nice umbrella you got there, she said. I said thank you.  

I can't hold one of them since I broke my elbow. I murmured in sympathy.

Then she said something about not walking again and falling off a bike and not doing something else. She was walking, so I'm not sure if she was the one she was talking about or not. Then she told me to have a nice day, and I said to do the same.

Everyone boarded the bus, including the broom woman, who got on last. As the bus pulled away from the stop, she said Beautiful day we're having and laughed.
