Tonight I ordered a hamburger for a 91-year-old woman.

Based on the missed text messages I received from the delivery man who said he had waited five minutes and left, and based on talking to this 91-year-old woman on the phone confirming that she did not yet have the hamburger, I think it’s safe to say that it didn’t make it to her.

The hamburger probably sat on the ledge of her apartment building’s front door, hot steam in the bag slowly wilting the cardboard box holding the fries. Maybe someone stepped over it on their way out the door…
