1001 Black Men–#322

Here’s a drawing of the brother I saw standing around in the produce section at Farmer Joe’s. His wife was beside him, looking at the organic apples and speaking enthusiastically about the wide selection. He seemed distracted by his own thoughts. Perhaps he was considering the ramifications of the failure of contemporary physicists to confirm the existence of the Higgs Boson particle. Or, alternatively, he might have been walking through the possibilities for Europe’s economic future, given the recent election results in Greece and France. Whatever he was thinking about, I am pretty sure it wasn’t apples; and I could practically see each word his wife was saying as it floated into one of his ears and right out the other.
