      Mrs. Ishi didn’t know what to think. That was her husband roaring up the street in their blue Toyota Corolla. He cut the corner, too, and bumped over the curb, and jerked to a stop in front of the garage. Mr. Ishi was ordinarily a cautious driver. A regular fusspot over the car. If anything raised his shackles more than Mrs. Ishi leaving it out while she put the groceries away, she certainly didn’t know what it was. Now he left it idling in the middle of the drive while rushing all the way to the front door before trotting back to turn off the ignition. He walked past the newspaper also. He stepped over it twice.
