Small town moments
Old granny in fishnets dismounting taxi in front of restaurant: check. Two tiny Asian kids setting up a giant chessboard: check. And 30 minutes later one putting the other into checkmate: check. Kid in waiting room with cigarette filter up nostril: check. Anxious looking guy in black singlet inspecting meringue cases at supermarket: check.
