Yesterday I was getting on the 1 train after Redeemer's evening service, and there were 3 rowdy hoodlums in the car -- probably around my age. Early during that 60-block ride from 79th one of them stops paying attention to his friends and begins to stare oh-so-awkwardly, as I try without success to avert his gaze in Maslow's Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences.

I'm stepping off the train now and he grabs the other guy's arm... "Man I saw dat girl in dat movie Keill Bill!" "Awwwww shoooot..."

If I had still been on the train and clever enough I should have said meng I knows you! I seen you in the Gangster's Paradise. Or JayZ's last vid.


  1. at least he didn't say Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Or some jackie chan movie.
    .. would that have been better or worse?
