Apparently its rude to call homeless people bums. That’s just an uncommon random fact I thought I’d throw out there. Since there are so many of them you would think they weren’t taken into consideration so much. New Yorkers take the homeless very seriously. And why shouldn’t they? A decent portion claim to be
in every city.
I can say some add character to the street, however most are too pitiful to consider. While walking through
Another homeless man resides in the Sutphin subway station. He sleeps there, and under a blanket. Now even the though subway is underground… It’s hot as hell. I don’t understand it but I see him most mornings when I’m not too late to walk down to the other end of the station before the train comes. He’s begun speaking to me. Now, regularly this wouldn’t bother but I’ve seen one to many episodes of Law and Order. It’s just a hello or he pays me a compliment and I smile and nod. But even that’s too much for comfort.

I have to mention he did pose a wonderful question “can you make me fall in love?” he asked, after some silly conversation involving authorative rights over one another. This made me squeamish, like the salt from the margarita was all I had consumed all night. I pursed my lips to the side, making a self assured face as if to say “look at me… your just a man, are you kidding, I’m Roberta” I answered “what do you think?” then quickly diverted my eyes and eased into another subject.
I had a really good time and now, more and more I’m realizing, its ok to date and not every man wants to claim you as his prize because he buys you dinner. On some level I suppose they have just as many choices as I do.
