The jury's still out, apparently

Intersection A
Tuesday, 9:30 am. A red car stops for a traffic light.

Man Old Enough to be My Father: [Holds up a pair of green plastic frogs for sale, squeaks them engagingly]

Me: [Shakes head, looks off in another direction]

MOEtbMF: How come you're so pretty?

Me: [Shrugs] Can't help it.

MOEtbMF: I like you. [Walks away]
Intersection B
Tuesday, 10:30 am. A red car slows, signaling a left turn.
Little Old Man with a Walker: [Dinky wave]
