It had been a long day for Alexander- a terribly long day. Not only had work been rough on him, but his car had also broken down and he had to walk home on a busy New York street as pellets of ran fell down on him. Of course, he did expect to come home to a loving son who would hug him the moment he walked in the door- but, no, his wishes were not heard. Philip, his somehow loving son, had fallen asleep on the couch with his unfinished homework spilled everywhere. This day is surely going to hell.
