How did this happen? How did they get here with that?
On a weekday, mid month, you don’t expect to see anyone moving furniture, not without professional help. But there they were.
A woman with a stroller paid little attention, as if this kind of thing happens all the time.
Finally a plan in place, each mover seized an unweildy end of the displaced mattress.
The mattress, bigger than either person, still wore its sheet.
As traffic piled up around them, the pair managed to lift the mattress and carry to rejoin the box spring and tilted frame.
We’ve all had days like this, and we will have more. If we’re lucky, we’ll and never do it again.
Probably best if we leave the road to bicycles, cars and trucks.
