As I was getting ready to eat, a homeless man with long hair and a grey beard sat on my table, right in front of me.
He was wearing a black turtleneck and he was carrying an old, bulky Compaq laptop.
He opened his laptop and started playing with the keyboard when he said to me, "I'll trade you my laptop for your sandwich. I'm really really hungry, man."
I said, "I already have a laptop but here, have half of my sandwich."
He then said, "Thanks man. Good... I don't really have the power chord anymore."
I checked my email. He played with his laptop keyboard. We finished our sandwiches and wished each other good luck.
