Tim had been sitting in a freezing car for over 4 hours now. Most people on the sidewalk next to him were bundled up or moving as fast as they could to their destination. He sighed and checked his pocket watch yet again. The rhythmic ticking was the only sound in the car. His hand went to the radio until he realized that it had been broken for the past two months. He open a crumpled magazine he had picked up at a restaurant on a late night trip for takeout. Already the pop culture references were far outdated. The man's mind then turns to what happened to his friend who was supposed to be here hours ago. He checks his watch again. He said to meet in Cairo, New York at 11:30 pm. He checks his watch, thousands of miles away in Cairo Egypt his friend does the same.
