a witnessed exchange

On a hot sunny day, two homeless men apparently unaware of one another amble up a hill.

One is emaciated and filthy, mumbling obscenities to no one in particular. The other, an older man, pushes an over-burdened shopping cart slowly up the slope. Occationally the insane man will break out into more violent screaming, before returning to the steady babble.

"fucking fuck fuck fucking asshole... I know you want me dead... FUCK YOU! ... Why don't you just Why don't you just TAKE THAT GUN OUT AND KILL ME!"

The older man pauses and slowly turns around to silently face the babbling lunatic.

"...I... I was just kidding."
