    At Work

    I work at the community pool.  I am a lifeguard now, but started off as a deck attendant.  One of my first few days on the job, I got the unlucky task of mopping the back hallway.  We had just closed from day swim, and it was taking longer than usual to clean up...

    Deadly Legs

    I once had a guy come up to me and tell me I had killer legs and that he'd love to photograph them. He was in his early twenties. It was creepy. Made me wish I hadn't worn a skirt that day. I just ignored him and kept on walking - maybe quickened my pace a little. No doubt some...

    Odd Strangers

    I have had far more than one strange experience with people I didn't know coming up to me & saying something unusual. One of those times was when I was about 19 or 20. It was wintertime & I was outside, freezing, waiting for a taxi, when some lady comes up to me...

    and said he had a micro penis and handed me a piece of paper and walked away. I have yet to open or read it. I'm scared.

    I find that this happens a lot to me.

    I've been in a group of people, and a stranger would come straight to me to tell me their life story. Then I would find myself feeling empathetic and giving them advice! Afterward I feel uplifted. I've also had random times that people come up to me to tell me something about...

    I'm Not a Mom

    Last Mother's Day I was walking home after getting off the subway.  This old man who I've never seen before told me, "Happy Mother's Day" and I said that I wasn't a mother.  Then he said, "Well you're going to be soon."
