The Scribbling Resident
© 2012 by A. Dameron
Last week, I visited a Starbucks in Charlotte (near Presbyterian, on E. 7th Street, if you're local). Across from where I was sitting was a guy alone at a table, wearing green scrubs, his hair cut in a flattop, and a Marine Corps tattoo on his arm. He had earphone buds connected to an I Pod and was scribbling furiously on his PAD, as if he was determined to get as much writing in on his precious coffee break.
Reminded me when I did the same thing in the teacher's lounge while I was student teaching.
