A Sophisticated Rhetorician Intoxicated By The Exuberance Of My Own Verbosity
Was this said to you? If so, how did you respond?
Hey! Are you ignoring me?
Yes.But your scary T.A. tactics have now intimidated me into answering.In answer to your original question, this was said to me. I gave the guy an appeasing "Whatever, Crazy Man" smile and looked away. And then, when he continued to ask personal questions, I continued to give him very vague answers. ("Where do you work?" "Downtown." "Where downtown?" "In a building." "Which building?" "One of the downtown buildings." And so on.)
Wow, so much fun riding public transportation eh? We used to run into all kinds of people on the el in Chicago. I think one of the craziest was the drunk dude trying to sell us t-shirts. Kathy is so quick thinking though. She's like "that's our stop" and we got off at some random stop and waited for the next train to come along. Then there was the lady who had a different kind of cancer every day when she walked through the train asking for money. And who could forget the gaggle of dudes smoking pot on the train with us.
Okay, that's my favorite line ever, now.
