A large duck

Waiting for the bus at 9:30 at night, I see a couple walking down the sidewalk on the other side of the street. She's narrow and short, with dark blonde hair and a down vest. He's big and beefy with a Moe Howard haircut, and he's pushing a three-wheeled baby stroller--the kind joggers use.

And he's dropping the f-bomb, over and over. I can't quite hear what he's saying, but he's clearly telling a story about guys who curse at each other like characters in SCARFACE. I hear him swear three times, then again and again and again. The baby is probably too young to understand the word, but it still seems wrong.

The woman looks up at him with a half-smile frozen on her face, Even from 4 lanes away in the streetlights I can see that her eyes are nervous, as though she was next to a malfunctioning lawn mower and had no idea how to safely shut it down.
