Me at Hummus Place, on 7th Ave. South, waiting for Homeboy Sandman.

OLD MAN sitting at the table next to me, with his DAUGHTER.

DAUGHTER gets up to use the bathroom.


OLD MAN: Are your earrings heavy?

ME: No.

OLD MAN: Well they're beautiful.

ME: Why, thank you.

OLD MAN: Are you a model?

ME: No.

OLD MAN: I've always wanted to meet a model. You could have humored me a bit.

ME: Oh, I'm sorry. You know what, you're right. I should have.


OLD MAN: Enjoy your dinner.

ME: Thank you. Enjoy your night and I hope you see your model one day.

OLD MAN: I did. I saw you.
