Playing detective

A teenager was arrested yesterday afternoon in Norwalk, climbing his neighbor's roof in a wig.
The teen, who was still wearing the hoodie and the wig, told police that his actions were based on a dare, police said. He said his classmates had levied the dare at him, but did not specify the contents of the dare, police said.

There are rumors that the dare involved climbing a roof in a wig.

McDonald's on Route 1 in Fairfield

Yesterday afternoon I was in Fairfield and I noticed I was insufficiently decaffeinated. So I pulled into the McDonald's on the Post Road to get some coffee and an apple pie. There were six or seven employees, but nobody was paying any attention to me. (Sniff. Poor me.) Three of the girls were listening to another girl tell a story.

I imagine that the story-telling girl was just getting off her shift, since she was wearing a coat. She was leaning on the table where the apple-pie machine was, with her back to me. In the middle of a sentence, she sneezed full on on the apple-pie machine and wiped her nose. None of the other employees batted an eye.

I had my coffee at Starbucks.
