I went into Kinko's because I needed some paper for my printer. Make a single copy, take along about 100 sheets of blank paper. When I grabbed the paper I noticed someone left their copy card behind; it had thirteen cents left on it, enough for one copy. So that whole operation was cost-free to your humble narrator.
When I was drying off from the shower I caught a glimpse of the Muse in the mirror. It was my own reflection. From the corner of my eye, with my face tilted to catch the light, I seemed to see her kabuki demoness face. And days later, in the bathroom at the movie theater, under the fluorescent lights I seemed strangely female for an instant, though at this stage I look anything but.
