Waiting to cross the street last night in my neighborhood, guy walks up next to me, late forties, early fifties. We see a car nearby looking to park. Guy says to me, “He’s not going to find a spot. I just came around the block, nothing, drove around again and found one. I always have luck since I came here.”
I ask where he’s from and he says California.
“I always find a spot and after the hurricane people would be waiting hours for gas, I went, twenty minutes I was done.”
He was bragging. The light turns and we cross the street.
“Well, it’ll come around and even out,” I say. “Karma does that.” I don’t mean to use to word Karma but that’s how it comes out.
“No, I’m a good person so I’ve got nothing but good Karma. That can never touch me in a bad way. Just remember if you are a good person you’ll always have Karma on your side”
I thought of saying something else but let it and him go.
