Madame Bottomly

Madame Bottomly and I began to be friends one day last spring when the air felt like a holiday: sun sniffing at pigeons, heavenly steam from the bakery, glitter in the drains.  She is a person who always puts her green box out for recycling at least two hours before the men come, and same with the garbage.  I had noticed she always did this herself, as I do, though I was aware she had a husband lurking somewhere in the house, because she mentioned him in passing.  I would pass, for example, on my way to Binos for a carton of mango juice and a flirt with the young butcher, and she would nod and smile as she brought a box down her steps...
