I had a morning coffee at Starbucks and was putting my $3,000 Apple computer in a carry sack. At the time I had a patch over one eye, was wearing a cervical collar and my foot was bandaged...
Along comes a young woman who begs for some money... I tell her to get a job.
At that moment she grabs my eyeglasses, throws them to the sidewalk and her boyfriend, whi is close by, grabs the strap holding the computer in the bag.
I am not a cop, but I thought quickly and yelled:
"FREEZE....POLICE OFFICER - both of you are UNDER ARREST!
The guy lets go of the strap and he and the girl flee into the street.
At that moment a Kenworth eighteen-wheeler is trying to make the light, which is changing.
He must be doing sixty miles an hour.
Both of them get creamed by his front bumper, Mush, blood, mangled guts. Yuch.
You would have need a shovel to get them in body bags.
Hmmmm, I said to myself.
And took a sip of my double latte to go.
