Really?!

Todd thought I should post my most recent run in with a lady on the sidewalk. I should probably start a separate blog solely for that. But a lady was annoyed and shook her head as she passed Ben on his scooter next to the park today and so as I walked by I simply asked, "What's your problem lady?" To which she replied in her huffiest voice, "I broke my ankle and I just think people should be more careful around me!"
The guy sitting on the bench right there laughed out loud to hear her say this. It just shows how self-centered can be to think that every person on the streets of NY should be careful when walking next to her because at some point in her life she broke her ankle. We had a good laugh.

I'll let you know when I start my "Really?!" blog...like Seth on SNL during the Weekend Update.

And just when I thought your blog could not get more entertaining....

It's pretty perfect that the guy on the bench had your back with his crack up. maybe that;s a new strategy for you when confronting these loonies-- make sure you do it with ear shot of sensible people.

was I with you when that happened??? I slightly remember a lady ducking for cover when Ben strolled by her.... not even remotely close by the way. It was like Ben carried the same weight as an 18 wheeler coming at her, full speed.
