1)
Life is
everyone.

2)
First homeless person,
white blonde woman,
carried this sign:
Help me.
My husband was
abducted by
aliens.
And that's not
a good thing.

3)
Eddie our waiter
at Arnold's restaurant
African from Cape Town:
"Life is ironic.
I want to work
at the Marriott Hotel
in Mobile, Alabama.
I spent a year
there.
You probably
want to move
to Cape Town.
Am I right?"
he asked.
