One thing about moving from a small, rural town to a semi-urban community is that you run across those with other lifestyles more often. Today Izumi was at the shopping center with Tyler and there was a homeless women shuffling by with all her belongings in a shopping cart. Tyler, not being shy, kindly informed the woman that the shopping cart actually belonged to a store and wasn’t her’s to take.
Fearing a a nasty rebuke, Izumi called Tyler over to the car so they could get on their way. Instead, there was a short conversation and Tyler came back smiling. The woman had complimented his boots.
