I was umbrella poached this morning! I had just arrived in terrible Times Square on my way to work, and was standing waiting to cross the street when I noticed a strange presence behind me. Times Square is usually pretty crowded (reason 1 why it’s terrible) but this was different…someone was RIGHT behind me. I turned and it was a little woman poaching umbrella space from me! She kind of avoided looking at me and then started walking when the light turned, but I had to laugh. She literally sidled up to me to get out of the rain. Could it have been my perfume? No, I don’t wear perfume to work.
How funny. Welcome to NY, where you take what you can get.
