Lunch on Martin Luther King Day

A Weekly Writing Challenge Made for Me:

1-    Short posts are perfect since I am working on longer writing projects.

2-    The French in me likes short breaks during the day. Not just for lunch.

Morning in town on Martin Luther King Day.

No school zone speed limit slowing downtown traffic.

No car jamming the exit toward Government Center.

No line creeping toward Starbucks and Subway.

One salesman guarding the men’s suits at Macy’s.

This one is made for you, I tell my son, shopping for Winter Formal.

A quick sale begs for a quick bite.

But my son hooks my arm and says, No, it’s MLK day, let’s go home and have lunch with Dad.
