Happy Ending, sort of

Right after the DMV debacle, I got myself a cup of coffee from the Dunkin Donuts across the street. As I was making my way to the bus stop, coffee in hand, this lady wearing a pink hat and pushing some sort of weird black cart, said, "Watch your step... bitch."

Me: "I'm sorry, were you talking to me?"
Pink hat: "You just watch where you're going with that coffee."
Me: "My coffee? Why?"
Pink hat: "You come over here with that coffee and you're gonna get hurt. You'll see."
Me: [Silent disbelief]

So, as Josh Ritter says, "We're all half crazy, but all at least half all right."

Except that lady. She's clearly unhinged--which makes me feel totally better about the rest of us.

I can't believe a crazy woman with a pink hat threatened you with physical harm. Via the coffee. That's very, very funny.

I know! It's the ones with the pink hats you gotta watch out for.

Plus, I could've taken her.
