multiple choice.

the laundromat.  you are here doing your laundry, of course.  five minutes left on your dryer.  to your left stands a man, staring at his load of laundry (also drying).  he proceeds to take out of his pocket a small video camera and begins to video tape his personal effects being tossed around in the machine.  this makes you slightly uncomfortable, but things really start to get interesting when the man starts whistling, "if i only had a brain," from the wizard of oz, wrapping up the performance with a simple jig.

you:

A.  applaud.

B.  ignore him.

C.  pretend to be completely engrossed in your book, but secretly and cautiously watch him out of the corner of your eye.

D.  quickly run your hand through your bag to make sure you brought the mace.

E.  run.

A. Definitely A.

Julia said...

I would probably go with B. but maybe that is just because I have lived here too long and am jaded. I ignore people really well.

i'm h.mac said...

b,c,d and e, right?

Kat said...

The real question is what did YOU do? I think I would like to say that I would pick A, but I probably am only good for C.

i have to go with c. if his strange antics continue, i might resort to d. and finally if his behavior escalates to...uh, let's say stage 5 clinger status, i would instantly e...depending on the laundry i had in the dryer. because some jeans are just worth dying for. ;)

Noelle said...

Holly said...

Lori said...

haha! oh my goodness, this is hilarious and creepy all at the same time! i have such a great visual in my head. i would want to do A but probably wouldn't have the guts, so would just stick with C... maybe. and i'm extremely curious as well, what did YOU do?

and i didn't know you went to the laundormat now...

Such a great NYC story....I would love to say that I'd do A, but would likely choose C.

Kathryn said...

I swear I left a comment... but maybe only in my head.

I really, really hope you applauded. Because that would just be so perfect.

I love NYC.
