7. I put my car in first gear and ran alongside it delivering newspapers

  • The folding of the papers.
  • The loading of the papers into the car.
  • The route itself.
  • Each street.
  • Each house.
  • Each paper toss.
  • Eventually even the driving and the gears for each section (mostly 3rd gear, with lots of fluttering of the clutch to avoid inefficient shifting).

I was born in a small town in Calif. . just another latch-key kid obsessed with BMX and Tom Petty. Now I make films and write when I get curious.
