I may have acted like a swamp witch while asking them to smile for the billionth time. I've repented.
I may have turned gangsta' on the man who, my homegurl warned, was coming up from behind as I stood snapping pictures on a remote street in downtown Phoenix. The guy asked, "Have you seen my friend...
"No," I cut him off mid-sentence. "I have not seen your friend. We just got here!" I stared him in the eye and gave him the what's-your-next-question, chump? look. Then I slightly wagged my head and neck while waiting for his response, and that's when he decided to turn and walk the other direction.
"That's what I thought," I said under my breath as he walked away.
"You're kind of tough," my homegurl noted. And I said, "Dang-straight! That's how we do."
Then I turned and saw that Bryce was coming out from behind the building, so maybe it was Bryce who scared him off. No...
P.S. Maybe I should repent for being rude to the man.
