In The Courthouse Elevator

This guy gets in the elevator with me. We ride in silence for a moment while he looks at the files in my arm.

“Man, I’m glad I don’t got no court today,” he says.

I say, “Huh. That’s funny, because I’m glad I do.” He laughed.

A fine moment of humanity. Later I wondered why he was there if he didn’t have business with the courts but there’s all sorts of reasons why that might be.
