tuesday april 15

today i ordered a piece of lemon meringue pie at williams downtown. after i'd paid and received my 'number' and things appeared finished, i thought i heard the guy behind the counter say "how's it going?" to me, as if i were a new customer just approaching. confused, i assumed maybe he was already talking to the next person in line, but he was staring directly at me still, so i uncomfortably replied "oh... all right." as soon as i said this, i realized he hadn't said "how's it going?" but rather "have a good one" and that his smile had waned as a result of my fairly rude reply.
