This new article had come out in one of the nation’s top magazines about how interrupting others is healthy for the new consciousness attention deficit disorder had helped to create, ironically. As a result, you couldn’t walk down the street without someone getting in your face and making you stop whatever it was you were doing. A man who usually sat on the street corner by the cupcake store smoking a cigarette peacefully jumped up and got in my grill. “How are the clouds today?” he said. “They seem to be fine. How are you doing?” I said. I saw you looking down at your feet,” he said. “Just now or at some time in the past?” I said. The man pushed his nose into my nose. I tried to tell him to stop, but each time I tried he asked me a random question and pushed harder into me and then asked another question. He got a little drool on me. I tried to tell him to stop and that he was hurting me a little, but I couldn’t get a word in. I had little choice but to walk away. “Avoiding your problems again?” he said. He tried to catch up to me. A woman holding a bag of groceries who just exited the Co-op, tripped me and I fell. “Fine day, don’t you think?” she said. Then she walked away. Meanwhile, the man had gotten down on all fours and was shaking his head back and forth above my face like a dog with a stuffed animal. I started to cry, but some of his hair got in my eye.
