Dear Mr. Caribou Man,
Today I went to Caribou at my normal 8am, and you were not there. I was a little worried at first and then a little sad. But no worries, you walked in at 8:20am. You got your normal coffee and glass of water. You sat across from me in the comfortable chairs and pulled up a foot rest like always. Today was a pondering day--no friends or newspaper. Maybe someday soon I will be brave enough to say hello to you, my caribou man.
