Last night, Mr. Brooks explained that somewhere between the grocery store, lunch and Last Chance, where he was looking for a blue shirt for a memorial service in L.A. this weekend, he lost his wallet. So instead of leaving for California last night as planned, he would now have to wait until this morning, and first go to the DMV to get a new driver’s license, then queue up at the bank so he could get a temporary debit card, since all of his backup credit cards are in Denver.
“Why were you looking for a blue shirt?” I said.
“I just told you this whole story about what I have to go through, and THAT’S the question you ask?” he said disbelievingly.
“I’m doing it chronologically,” I said. “I’ll get to the empathy in a moment.”
(And yes, I loaned him a blue shirt to wear.)
