72/365: Johnny IV

John was my rowing coach. He had a pink Ford F150 which may or may not have faded that way from red, damn it, and had a habit of wearing cologne with hints of lavender. We used to buy him hair barettes and raisin bran with extra raisins from the bulk section as gifts.

He was notorious for mooching food so one day I brought a big bag of wasabi peas to a regatta with me. Without asking, he grabbed a handful of them and popped them in his mouth. The look on his face was priceless.
