It’s five minutes to twelve and the whole diner is watching the clock. Maybelle rushes to the window first like every Friday when Everett comes to town. Sally’s right behind her wearing a little flour from the afternoon pies. When the dirt and exhaust clears there’s Everett on the craziest contraption I have ever seen.
“What in the hell is that?”
“That man’s insane.”
“Way uglier than last week’s.”
“I wouldn’t get on that thing if you paid me.”
“You know you would.”
I wrap my donut in a napkin. Nobody’s faster than me.
