It’s such a good image. Straight from the site. I’ve been inside this thing and I can prove it. Upon reflection, the building is magnificent. And no question. It’s still the best laundromat in Manhattan. And I’ll vouch for that.
I knew nothing about the subject of the title of this post. That is until the security guard said to me one day a while back, “I’ve got a book for you.” And sure enough he did.
The book is called “The Turning Point” and it’s written by April Kingsley. The publisher is Simon & Schuster, the publication date 1992. That’s all right. It’s not that long ago.
The security guard and I have a good relationship. I’m not sure why that is. It could be because in his duties he always preferred the .38 over the 9mm. The reason? “It’ll never jam.” And I feel the same way on some level.
The security guard doesn’t pack these days but he’s painted for a long time. And we share some of the same frustrations, like being born in Saskatchewan. He found out I’m a writer because I told him, and told him where he could find proof, such as it is. I’ve yet to see any work by the guard, and it better be good when I do. I know it will be.
more to come…
