Yesterday morning I was in the elevator going to work and there were three other people who clearly were coworkers at a company on a higher floor. The conversation went like this:
Woman 1: Oh, I like what you did with your hair. Woman 2: Thanks. I decided to make it more curly. Woman 1: I'll bet the recent humidity makes it difficult to manage. Man: I hate hair. *** Elevator arrives at my floor *** *** All three look at me as I move towards the doors *** *** Shrugging my shoulders I throw up my hands and gesture upwards *** Me: I don't have that problem. *** They then notice my lack of hair *** Woman 2: That was funny....(heard while the doors closed behind me)
Walking home from work yesterday, I was in a hurry to get home and strip off my work clothes and change into something more comfortable. A man who hasn’t shaved in about a week and who is wearing dirty clothes eyes me walking very fast up the hill in Park Slope. He says only one thing to me:
"Hey kid. You make a million today?"
