Outside My Window Last Night

October 11th, 2014 Posted in Uncategorized

I heard a bunch of people screaming outside my window last night, but I often hear that. It’s usually a bunch of kids partying or having a drunken argument. I live across the street from a parking garage and people tend to fight at the end of the night when they’re picking up their cars. Except the screams felt more … urgent. I don’t know the backstory, I didn’t look right away, but when I did this guy was laying on the street, not dead, not bleeding, and the police were there questioning everyone around them.

The FDNY came and put him on a stretcher, but no one seemed in any hurry about it. I don’t know what to make of it. I don’t know if this guy is a victim or if he was the source of the trouble.

Finney was crying, so you’ll also hear me periodically telling him it’s okay.

    That was interestingly compelling. We sure don’t get that in the suburbs! The most exciting things are when people get drunk and someone calls the cops. Or several years ago, my neighbour’s house caught fire and that was pretty exciting.

    For your cats, here’s this:

    I love George the cat!! Thank you that link and for the one with cats and brooms.

    Yeah, it was compelling to watch from my window. One guy walked right up to the poor guy and started taking pictures with his smartphone, before the cops shooed him away. I thought it was kinda despicable how he did it, but then I thought, I’m doing the same thing, only from a discrete distance.
