Coyote thought there could only be two outcomes to heading to the laundromat on Valentine's Day. Either the place would be completely empty, and he'd get his pick of the machines, or he'd fall in love.
The place was empty.
So he made change and set two machines to bright colours and waited.
He thought back to his first week of college. Maybe because that was also a time he felt alone. The "Welcome Fair" had a psychic, and Coyote decided he might as well try. He asked if he was the Buddha.
"No, or course not," the psychic said.
