Assignment: Starting sentences with, “I met him on the stairs….”
1. I met him on the stairs, the quiet passing of two souls. Then he dropped his bag of groceries and we were knee-deep in cans of tuna and apples rolling dangerously underfoot.
2. I met him on the stairs.
“Hey! You’re the guy I’ve been looking for.” He said.
“Oh really?” I said. “What did I do now?” I thought to myself.
“Yeah. I’m the super here and you owe some rent…I’m not puttin’ up with that, ya hear?”
Damn. Moving again it looks like.
3. I met him on the stairs, wind-blown and red-faced.
“Elevators out again?” I asked.
He rolled his eyes as he panted past me.
