Outer Space Edition
hearing at the House. Just saw this lovely little space person in the
cross walk in front of the air and space museum.
And it made me ask myself: am I nuts, betting on the goodness of
humans? To explain: after the $6 cab ride to the hearing, after the
cab driver had employed some sweet driving maneuvers to bypass
unusually bad traffic, he told me he had no change for a big bill. I
had a 20 and a 5 and he said he'd take the 5. But he deserved a good
tip for his sweet sweet driving. I gave him the 20 and my card and
told him to drop a 10 at my office tomorrow. I know I may never see
that money. But he didn't seem to be scamming me. So I just bet $10
that human goodness isn't out of this world.
UPDATE: Except for leaving a very nice comment on this post, my cabbie has been MIA. :(
