Historic Occasion

While on my health-bestowing constitutional through the Mission this afternoon, I came upon the elderly and, to my eye, quite handsome black gentleman to whom I always give a dollar or two. We often enjoy (well, not sure how much he enjoys it) a brief incomprehensible exchange.

“Happy Labor Day, sir!”, I screamed, mindful of his failing hearing.

He replied, “This is the first time in 51 years Labor Day has fallen on this day—September 7!”
