Ms. Sanchez

DAY_229__13Day 229 (August 18, 2014) – Brooklyn, NY

She stay hanging out by the bus stop. I see her almost every morning usually hanging with Lazy Larry. He’s our neighborhood drunk (who is probably slightly mentally challenged). They are a team.  I don’t even know how it works. He usually sits in the bus shelter playing music and yelling at each bus that goes by. Ms. Sanchez, on the other hand, chills out behind the bus shelter still in the shade and always with a smile on her face. I don’t think she speaks English…and I know Larry doesn’t speak Spanish (except for the word ceveza). She can’t walk that good. That’s why she’s in that chair. But she sure does get around. You’ll see her all up and down Myrtle. Watch out! She’ll run you over with that chair if you’re not paying attention. She’ll keep that smile on her face too while you nurse a sore toe. It’s people like Lazy Larry and Ms. Sanchez that make me love my neighborhood.
