Every time I leave Boston I have to drive through that intersection off of Mass. Ave., just past the hospital, that takes me onto I-93. There are always guys there selling roses or some other such nonsense that I never want to buy, nor would I open my window for them to begin with even if I did want to buy one. But I always at least look at them and shake my head, because it feels so foolish to just sit there in my car and pretend they're not there. I'm gather that a lot of people do that though, cos whenever I look at them they give me a big genuine smile.

A million stories in the naked city

Heh. I've gone from joking about this exchange to thinking it's a really sad story and back again. I might have made his morning. Possibly not.

There are different ways we use to get by, I guess. It does seem like there's something important in all of this.

Yeah, I think there is something important. Even if they're some annoying hobo on the street, they're a human still. Everyone wants to be acknowledged, to be understood, to be seen and loved. It doesn't matter who it is.
