Dear Crossing’s Chicken Pot Pie Pan and Afghan Potholders

Published on: Jun 17, 2013No comments

Excerpt from Dear Crossing:

Up ahead was a Greyhound and two more trucks, including a skateboard and a bobtail. Gauging the traffic behind him, he thought “now or never” and eased over to the left lane before the next hill. He gained on the Greyhound quickly. His cab was eye to eye with the passengers, so he took a quick peek at them. Nothing out of the ordinary, bunch of people reading, a few men sleeping, a group of teenagers huddled in conversation. He slid his eyes back towards the road and accelerated slightly but just as the truck passed the half way point, a glint of red blonde hair caught Ron’s eye. Holding steady, he glanced over to the Greyhound.

It was her!

It had to be.

She had been perfect. She cooked a mean homemade chicken potpie and knitted him ridiculously colored afghans. She had paid his taxes and his tickets. She had even bailed him out of jail, holding his hand in silence as they had drove back to her apartment. He could almost smell her strawberry shampoo and taste her spearmint kisses.

For five years in the late 1990s, I commuted one hour each way between Lafayette, IN and Indianapolis. On those long drives, I passed countless buses and semi-trucks and wondered what they saw from their vantage point. I imagined a one-way sighting which was unrequited.
