One time several years ago, I was heading to work very early one morning. I drove down to the stop sign at the bottom of the hill near our house.
I looked right, then left, and when the road was clear I took a left turn onto the main roadway.
As I was turning, I glanced to the left toward the little mini mart/gas station near… the corner, and my eye happened to catch glimpse of a man standing out near the gas pumps. He was wearing a full set of army fatigues and his arm was extended toward me in a wave. He was grinning at me as his head was slightly down and he was looking right at me from just under his eyebrows, smiling.
In the split second it took me to glance the other direction and then do a double take back his way, he was gone.
It was then I realized that the mini mart wasn’t even going to be open for another 2 hours.
Who was he and where did he go? And why the strange smile as he looked at me from just under his brow?
