the face of the waitress was flat- no expression. 

The T shirt was self explanatory 


I was sure it was not really a request,  not really something she wanted anyone to do 

                                                (Even if you were deathly ill, who would want that done in public ?)


Which is what I asked her, out loud 

                                                (because sometimes I do that- speak my thoughts to the public, without knowing it) 


She tilted her head to one side,  remembered her shirt and then smiled

A weary but soft smile

                                              Oh, I'm just kidding- it's been a long year


It has  It truly has.
