“are you finished?” was all i heard as i started up the steep incline that started the fryman canyon fire road.
i stared back at the sweaty guy coming toward me as he repeated “are you finished?”
just as i was attempting to explain to him in simple turns that even a nitwit could see that i was just starting the hike he added
” sorry, your tshirt? is it the finnish flag?”
“no” i replied…”.its a plus sign. it’s who i am…”
