    Homage to The Homey

    All kinds of cities, all across the world, east, west, north, south, affected. All sizes, all kinds and all at different stages. All had, empty kerbsides. Small businesses, specialist retail, travel agents restaurants, work offices all boarded up. All signs of the past, now silent. All mindful of very difficult times.

    There was a long row of people that filed around the corner forming an L shape. In front of HH was a guy with a 5 day beard and face mask hanging below his chin. There were four customers in front of him, each of them standing alone with a reasonable space between each other. All hunched over their trolleys staring at the entrance door of the store, defensively, as if they expected someone to jump the queue at any moment.

    HH eventually walked up to the entrance door. The person managing the entrance sanitised HH’s hands. Stepping into the store the air smelled of disinfectant. HH glanced all around the store. At the six people in the vegetable area, and then ahead at the 5 day beard man that was nearing the meat isle. HH set out hurrying towards the isle, but stopped halfway. HH changed direction and ran down an empty isle.
    HH made it to the end of the empty isle, turned left. Then he set off to the fridge in the middle of the meat isle. HH stood in front of it for a moment, as if expecting it to be empty. The 5 day beard man walked up. HH quickly reached into the fridge. Grabbed the last whole packer, looked up at the 5 day beard guy, as if he was going to snatch it from his grasp.
    The 5 day beard stood facing HH with his chin up, hostile, as if to say, that was mine.
    HH responded “What, you want something?”
    “Not anymore” the 5 day beard man replied “I just wanted you to run to the fridge and now you’ve done it so I’m all good”
    HH stared at the 5 day beard, sizing up the situation which he felt bad about. HH’s response was going to be a struggle. That was clear. In the end HH was overcome by his kind hearted nature.
    The 5 day beard had turned away to leave the store when HH called out “You can have it, Sir”
    “What” the 5 day beard said in surprise.
    HH walked up to him. The 5 day beard stared at HH and said “What do you mean?”
    “I guess you need it more than me” HH said “You were here in front of me in the queue anyway”
    “You’re a good man” the 5 day beard said “My family will be ever grateful”
