bootstraps

Josh is a member of a homeless family. He does his share by working the lines in the city.

If it’s raining, he rents umbrellas. Price is negotiated according to how close to the front of the line the rentee is. When the rentee reaches the front of the line, he/she (now we use “they”) returns the umbrella.

While dickering, Josh also has snacks on offer. He’s available to run errands for those in line, provide relaxing in situ massages, entertain young children, gamble on the flip of a coin.

He’s on the way up.
