I was in the middle of my zoom class. Tim walked into the office, shutting off the lights.
"Hey, I said, "I can't see my books."
He switched them back on and quietly left the office.
After the two hour class, he came back in. "Weren't you at all curious about what the police were doing?"
"While you were in class."
"Right in front of the house. Five police cars had a car with three guys pinned in. One of the guys took off running into the apartment house next door. He was hiding behind somebody's couch. The police went in and got him. They brought him out in cuffs. They took everything out of the car. It's piled on the front steps of the house next door..."
"What? Are you kidding me? How do you know all this?"
"I went out front and watched it along with everyone else on the street."
Dumbstruck, I sat there looking at him.
"It was drugs," he said.
