So, there’s a knock on the door
I’m still in bed so ignore it
then the door bell starts
and keeps going, ding-dong ding-dong ding…
So I drag myself out of bed to open the door to this character
Apparently, he lost the others he was with last night
in a different city
with no way to find them
and no idea of the address they were staying at
he headed for the train station to come home
but had missed the last train
so for 4 hours he waited outside, in just a t-shirt
at 6am he found an open MacDonalds
which seemed like the warmest place ever
and then, he was back out in the cold
to get the frist train for the 2 hour ride home.
By the time he knocked on our door
It looked like the ice had been building up on his shoulders
how he didn’t have hypothermia I’ll never know.
But it was then into some warm clothes (all of them)
and onto the couch by the heater.
