one of the many odd things that happened this weekend
as i sat at the bus stop friday night, feeling incredibly frustrated and alone, a man came up to me and asked if i was "working or just waiting for the bus." i told him that i was just waiting, and then it hit me - this dude thinks i'm a prostitute. he went on to say that if i was selling, he was buying and that he had a place nearby. i smiled and shook my head. eventually he started to cross the street, then stopped, and jogged back to give me a bus token - "i bus all the time but you can have this." i took it, thanked him, and he walked back across the street and turned the corner.
