In keeping with this week’s examples, dealing with the negatives of assumption, I’ll write about a New York Moment. The incident happened while I was living in New Jersey and attending Seton Hall University. My cousin was visiting our aunt, who lived in Scarsdale, NY. (***This has absolutely nothing to do with the story, but I love college football. I’m watching the TCU-Baylor game and it is unbelievable!***) She (My cousin) asked me to take the New Jersey Transit into the Big Apple and I agreed to meet her on a Saturday afternoon. The trip into New York City was fairly monotonous for the most part. UNTIL…we entered the subway. I met her at Grand Central Station, where we boarded the A-train towards Times Square. At the 42nd Street station, we exited the train and walked down one of the long hallways, towards the stairs. When we reached the bottom of the steps, she looked up, paused, and grabbed my arm suddenly. “Hold on.” She said. She wanted us to lock arms as we walked up the stairs because there were two menacing-looking, obvious gang bangers. We honestly didn’t know who the guys were, but we assumed the worst. As we walked up, it appeared as if the men, who were paying close attention to us, were clearly out for trouble. I was honestly anticipating that one of the thugs would yell-out a disrespectful cat-call, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were a few steps from the top, when the gangsters embraced one another and began to kiss passionately! We were stunned! It turned out, I was the one who needed to grab her arm! BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
Congrats to Baylor…GREAT GAME! I can’t wait for the Gators to start the season…7pm EspnU!
Check back tomorrow for next week’s preview!
