Down on his luck writer goes to a takeaway to drown his sorrows.

CSR: “How can I help you?”

“Lamb burger.”

“With onion?”

“Yes.”

“Tomato sauce?”

“Yes.”

(He’s a regular)

Pause. Uncomfortable.

“Working?”

“Eh?”

“You were down there, weren’t you? I saw you.”

“Temporary.”

“What are you doing now?”

“By night I’m a student, by day an animal psychologist.”

Phew. “That’s hard work.”

I laughed inside. He handed me my burger, glad he wasn’t in my shoes.
