An hour away from the start of my vacation and I was running after a bunch of clowns. Literally. I should be clocking out and leaving my partner with all the paperwork. God knows he deserved it for backing out at the last minute.
“Come on, man. It’s time to join the circus,” Marcus shouted back as he reached the depot’s fence.
I joined him shortly after, out of breath. “Stop making me laugh, asshole, or I’m not going to make it.”
We were over the fence by the time the train started pulling away. The stupid clowns waving good-bye.
