About to discover something

There is a reason to go outside because I'm sitting at the bus stop staring into the sun, appreciating this warmth. A friendly crackhead shows up, he says rach there crantrach. I hold my hand over my eyes so that I can see him: excuse me? I have computer parts, he says. He's holding a pot with a dead plant in it, maybe it used to be ivy but it's all broken off. Oh, no thanks. He's still looking at me -- what is the most pleasurable thing you do, he says. I think about it. He says no, what is the most pleasurable thing you do physically? He's looking me right in the eyes like I'm about to discover something.
