This style of writing bugs me. All it is a bunch of unrelated things described in present tense to give a sense that it actually has some sort of meaning. Rosie DiManno does this, too. It's kind of boring and when you mention "ethnic" people like they're wallpaper, it's a little racist.
Racist like that Zamboni driver Rick. Rick who used to like the drink until he saw that leprechaun, while walking back from Darcy's Pub on a Saturday in November. He describes the leprechaun as we sit down to coffee in Pete's Eatery. Pete watches us sip the black crude with his one good eye. The other one was lost somewhere, who knows where - a construction site, a factory, Vietnam? 'What do mean, Vietnam?' Pete asks. 'I'm only 22. Why would you even say that?'
A woman in a burka interrupts. She wants to order hash browns.
