03-05-08 Waiting for the light, Monroe & Lakeshore















Him: You are not from here.

Me: Not originally, but I live here now.

Him: I am from Oak Park. I come to Chicago to buy a Chinese newspaper--in Chinatown.

(Pause)

Me: I like Chicago.

(Pause)

Him: I like the lake.

(Pause)

Him: You are very young. 16!

Me: 25!

Him: Still young!

16? Hah! That's pretty funny. Reminds me of a time when a guy said to me:

"How old are you, 18?"
"No, 21."
"Same thing."

I assure you, to me 18 was not the same as 21.
