My brother, as you may remember, lives in Chicago. He is very tall and dark and handsome, although sometimes quite intimidating looking, especially when unshaven and in a cranky mood. Well, here, you can sort of tell here, that he is no delicate flower. :)
He is talking to me on his phone while walking down the sidewalk and mentions that now that the weather is nice, there are people on every corner, raising money for some cause. One group wants to save some building, another wants money to save a river, each cause more deserving than the next, of course.
He is very annoyed by these requests.
He mentioned that last week a man jumped in front of him on the sidewalk, obviously trying to lure him into a charitable place by throwing his arms in the air and declaring, "HEY HEY! YOU are going to LOVE this."
CJ throws his arms in the air and replies, "HEY HEY! I don't talk to strangers", before continuing on his way.
I love that this tall, intimidating looking, nearly 30 year old man still uses the "Don't Talk to Strangers" line.
