Image result for images of coat draped over chair

I went to the Y this morning, and when I returned, Patty was in the kitchen on the phone and didn’t hear me come in. So I draped my coat over the computer chair and went upstairs. When she came out of the kitchen, she didn’t see me–but she saw my coat.

“This is funny,” she said, “but when I saw that empty coat, all I could think of was The Rapture! And I thought, ‘Just my luck! I got left behind.” That fancy fled away when I came down the stairs.

I guess that goes to show you something about the times we’re living in.
