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.
