Overview

The protagonist of this utterly charming short narrative is an outgoing and talkative sign carrier on a busy street corner. It’s a seemingly dead-end job, and he appears a little delusional as he talks with pride about his long-held position. While we see a busy and banal street corner, he notices “so much beauty, so much opportunity, right under our noses.” It’s his last day on this much-loved job, and his positive outlook is simply infectious and magically changes our own perspectives.
