A Funny Thing Happened . . .

So I went out to go buy some books last night, because the reading urge hit me. I ended up with CDs. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, as I was walking home, a slightly dirty, possibly deranged, more than possibly drunk man pointed at me and yelled "YOU!"

Rowan: "Yes?"
Strange Man: "Do you have a light?"
Rowan: "Sorry, I don't smoke."
Strange Man: "You've never smoked a cigarette in your LIFE?!?!"
Rowan: "I didn't say I've never smoked, I said I don't now. So I don't have a lighter."

Strange Man: "DOES YER MAMA STILL MAKE YOUR BED???"

I laughed and kept walking. A block and a half later, I realized should have said "No, but yours does." Ah, witticisms. One day you'll work for me.
