The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Working for The Man

It's a few minutes before sunrise, I'm threading myself through a slalom of side streets before I drop onto the Northwest Distressway, and a pickup truck is parked by the curb. It is, of course, huge, but not so huge that I have to adjust my path, and as I approach its massive hindquarters I see the license plate: THE MAN.

Omigod.

All these years I've been working for The Man, and now I've moved into The Man's neighborhood? Obviously he knows — he is, after all, The Man — so I have to assume that it's due to the forbearance of The Man that I am allowed to remain here for the time being.

I will, of course, be careful not to disturb The Man's truck.

Did you know about The Man's domestic situation?

We all have our little, um, departures from our desiderata. :)

Actually, this truck is used for total hauling by the Total Hauling Enterprise Mobile Automotive Network.

If I could have it immediately and could afford to replace it shortly, Id want FORM 180; the plate I do actually plan to order reads PRE OND.

I caught sight of The Man's trailer today, which bore an emblem for The Man Racing and a Kawasaki logo.

Nice to know he has a hobby. :)
