delicious lady

driving the recycle truck

bright smile and dread-beads*

*(I thanked ‘the gentlemen’ who caught my recycling contribution bin I handed to one familiar guy and then looked towards the driver: she was gorgeous with a mega-watt smile, cinnamon-chocolate skin and fancy dreadlock hair adorned with multi-colored beads. “Oops,” I ‘pologized. “Sorry, yhoung lady, but I’ve never seen a woman driving a trash truck before.” If anything her smile grew brighter. And she nodded her head possibly in appreciation for my gender-correcting identification. “I’m new to this job,” she stage-whispered. “But I’m gonna do my best.” She already had.)
