I couldn’t be happier to be working with such an amazing group, doing work that is truly fulfilling. Thank you universe! I am blessed.
a young man approached me on the sidewalk this morning. he asked me a question, but through his accent, i couldn’t distinguish it. after three attempts, it became clear that he wanted to share my umbrella to the subway station.
it was pouring.
"you’re going this way?" i pointed.
we huddled together, protecting as much of ourselves from the rain as possible. it would have felt unnatural to remain silent while moving together so closely, so after thanking me for the cover, he continued to talk.
"how old are you?"
i smiled and shook my head. “why does that matter?”
a laugh. “i’m sorry”.
"are you Irish?" he asked twice.
i shook my head again, and thought “no, German.”
we stopped and stood on a corner, not waiting for the light to change, but for the speeding cars to pass, leaving a break through which we could cross.
we walked another block without speaking.
i felt him look at me. “are you single?”
a smirk. head shake. “no.” half true.
"oh." disappointed. "you have a boyfriend?"
another smirk. “no, i’m gay.” half true.
and here’s where he surprised me, teaching me more about my own cultural preconceptions than about who either of us might actually be:
"it must be nice to have freedom."
