7 am. Drizzly San Francisco street. Me, briskly walking to BART. Him, homeless man, weaving back and forth across the sidewalk, heading towards me.
Him: Mmmmm. MMMMM. Nice legs.
Me: (eyes cast downward, no response)
Him: (coming closer) Yeah. You look good. You look real good. (pause) But I bet you can’t cook.
