The warden was a small man, but dressed neatly.
Everything about him was neat – from his hair to his shoes. He was almost too neat.
“So what are your plans, Lou?”
When I walked into the room, the warden turned over a little hour-glass full of sand. We both watched it for a few seconds and then looked at each other. This was the first time I ever met the man. What did he care about me now? Since he never cared before, I figured the man was just looking for information. Perhaps he wanted to give me a warning. I didn’t say anything.
I am guessing that Lou is just about to be released from prison and is having his pre-release interview with the warden. I wonder why Lou thinks that the warden may be giving him a warning. Are there past issues which are ongoing and which the warden wants to either find out about, or nip in the bud?
Does the sand in the timer simply denote the time that Lou has been awarded for the interview, or is this the countdown to him being released to the outside world?
