1:17pm today. I'm walking up (down?) 14th Street. I see um a, lovely, creature in red at the corner of 14th and 1st.
Clearly lost and in a sea of spectators, s/he ("Red") was asking directions somewhere but noone was answering.
I'm nosy. And I'm ballsy. So I walked right up and asked "Where are you going?" Red answered "Con Edison" and I pointed east. Then I asked "Can I take a picture with you?"
And so, Red and I took a picture. I asked a woman walking by to take it. I am bossy. (and again, ballsy).
The woman who took the picture asked me afterwards if Red was famous. I said "Yes!"
Red, call me. I'll give you all $.08 in royalties I owe you on this one.
