Daily Prompt: Non Sequitur – STROLLING THROUGH THE PARK ONE DAY

So there we were. Walking through the gardens. Just minding our own business. Sandy was rambling on about something that happened at work and I was just absorbing the atmosphere, you know? Sunshine, flowers. Clean air.

In the park by the falls

I realized I was thirsty and figured they had to have some kind of water somewhere. You know, like a fountain or something. Not bottled water. Regular water, free. Like it used to be. You remember, the good old days when two things were free — air and water? Not like now where you have to wear a mask everywhere just to breathe, so even air costs money. Or at least clean air costs.

I just wanted a drink of water, not another credit card charge, y’know? Yeah, I can tell you know.

I stopped, and looked around. I saw this guy, just standing around. He was wearing a Parks Department uniform, or that’s what it looked like, so I figured he would know if there was a drinking fountain, right? Y’know?

So I yelled over … I had to yell, it was noisy. Dogs barking. Kids shouting. Mom’s shouting back.

“Hey, buddy. Is there a fountain around here? Like, for drinking?”

And the next thing I know … he tried to hit me with a forklift!

Is that weird or what?
