Whenever someone is rude to me on the street I’ve started coming up with positive reasons why. Like, “He is on his way to rescue a litter of puppies.” Or, “She just came up with a cure for cancer and she is telling her friend before she forgets what it was.”
I passed these women by on my way to the archives at the New York Academy of Medicine. The heat wave was in full force at the time. But the party must go on!
