Disco Inferno

She stood observing the sign, thinking how outdated it was and whether or not she should push the button. The heat was making her melt, like a snowman or a witch. Her cigarette was seeming difficult to finish. Then a 'blind' man walked past. He was swinging his walking stick, but his sunglasses guarded his eyes. She didn't even see him, like she was blind too.
'Hey'
'Hello'
'How do you do?'
'Just fine, thanks'
'That's good. You take it easy now'
'Thank you, you too'


She goes back to concentrating on the sign. He walks till he's about to disappear behind a corner. He turns around, still walking and says 'You're too pretty to be smoking'.
She is not only blind, but also deaf.
