The saddest face of the week

I still see in my mind’s eye the face of a man who served me in a take-away food shop at a bit before noon a few days ago. I could see that somewhere he had a quite long, narrow face, but it was being swallowed up by a heavy, cumbersome and unattractive layer of excess weight. That wasn’t the reason why this face grabbed my attention – it was the look of a miserable man feeling overcome by stress or maybe physical discomfort that I can’t forget. It was the beginning of the busiest part of the day, he needed a shave, and he had withdrawn from any type of social contact. I do hope the rest of his week has been a much happier time.
