Stephen King Look-alike
Stephen King Clone
In Marietta, downtown right in the middle of the town is Glover Park.
In the warm months there is a concert every Friday night. Anna and I have been going since they started. We don’t make every concert but we make most of them.
Ever since the first one we both notice a man who is always dressed the same: plaid Bermuda shorts and black socks. He is middle age. He is always alone.
He always takes a strong through the park just over the half-way point.
He looks very much like Stephen King.
Long ago we gave him the nickname of Stephen King. When we see him walking down the park’s sidewalk we will nudge each other and say, “Hereee’s Stephen!”
Last Friday night we were sitting with friends watching the concert and I saw Stephen come down the walk. I nudged Anna saying, “Hereeee’s Stephen!”
There was too much music and noise for him to hear us.
He stopped. Across the walk from us was an empty park bench. He sat down and seemed to be looking right at us for five or six minutes. He didn’t seem any hurry to get up and get back on the move or maybe prowl.
He looked like he was studying us. His facial expression was puzzlement, like trying to reach out to us, mind-wave wise. Fortunately, I think his mind ran into a cement wall.
Then he got up and walked away.
There goooes Stephen!!
