    Brainiac

    50 Words

    I entered the Park Street T stop to the strains of a John Lennon Christmas song. A too-small boom box supplied the backup music, too loud. Getting closer, I heard the singer’s voice: off key and off tempo. The impish cardboard sign read: “Need money for singing lessons. Merry Christmas!”
