wednesday september 17

today i was eating pizza for lunch, at a picnic table close to little caesars, as i often do. as i was sitting there chewing and reading a book, three kids -- probably about 10 years old -- walked past and one of them said to me: "hey can i have a piece?" and then quickly added "just kidding!" before i could respond. attempting to show that i'm a cool, fun guy, in spite of my office-ready dress shirt and pants, i called after them: "i would have said no anyway!" in a tone i was hoping sounded casual and joking, but, judging by the uncomfortable reaction, might not have come off that way.
