Click: Danger

Click: true moments, stories too short for the stage.

I am walking down Spadina. Minivans are honking furiously as the five o’clock traffic crawls in bursts.

I walk under tall scaffolding, and see a sign:

DANGER DUE TO MEN WORKING

But someone’s taken a magic marker and fixed the sign.

DANGER DUE TO (no) (wo)MEN WORKING

I laugh and involuntarily say, “Yes! YES!” to the sign, as if the marker wielder can hear me, and walk on.
