Everbody has one – here’s one of my most embarrassing moments ~  

A while ago, I had a job that was a nice 20-minute walk from my apartment.  I’d leave my car parked in our off-street lot, a little north of the building, and walk back and forth to work every chance I had. 

One day I was returning home and saw a woman pacing in front of the apartment building.  I didn’t recognize her, not even when I walked passed her to check on my car in the lot.  Living in the city, you never know what you’ll find.    

My car was fine.  Turning around and coming back toward my building, she was still there and I got a closer look; she was in heels and well dressed in business office attire, probably in her late 20’s, early 30’s, but looked a little anxious. 

Curiosity got the better of me and I approached her; “Sorry to bother you, but you look a little worried, like you’re waiting for someone – is there anything I can do?”

She stepped right up to me, leaned in real close, and with all the confidence and attitude in the world, whispered, “That’s what it’s supposed to look like, Honey, and if you want to help, you can move along.”  She stepped back, swiveled quickly around, and continued walking.

I stood stock-still – it took a second or two for my brain to decode it – then I burst out laughing, wished her Good Luck, and hurried into my building.

Yep, you never know what, or who, you’ll find in the city.
