Dark was the night where he parked the car, which was also his bed, under an immense bridge. He got out, leaned back in to pop the trunk and moved cautiously to the back of his vehicle. This is where things started to take a remarkably different turn. Up until this moment, the short, dark haired and somewhat weary man had been some poor bugger, stuck in a dead end job (I think he was either a dishwasher or worked in some meat factory, I seem to remember a lot of blood; also it could have been both, I mean, that he had two jobs), left by the mother of his children, unable to care for those children, effectively homeless, though not roofless. But now, as he opened the trunk and next opened the preposterously large suitcase inside that trunk, a Verwandlung in the true sense of the word began to take shape.

Out of the suitcase, which turned out to be nothing but his closet, came a pristine caramel coloured suit, with matching shoes. It was not a tight suit, like a bankers, but one with a certain sway, extremely elegant, yet loose and very comfortably fitting his body. If I had to bet I would say it was tailor made. He put on his shoes (no socks) and lifted a hat from the suitcase as well, a caramel coloured Panama matching the entire outfit. He snapped his fingers, made a few Michael Jackson moves and off he went, the camera trailing him from one obscure dance club to another, all night long. The man danced, and danced, and danced, and danced. He danced with more women in one night than I have danced with in my life. And that was his life, every day of it, every night of it. He wasn’t some poor bugger. He was a dancer.

Now you see, I suspect this hammock seller we see here, might also not quite be just that, a hammock salesman. Not just that.
