Now That You Put it That Way...

Yesterday I was walking down the street in the East Village when a homeless man crouched on the sidewalk muttered to me, "Spare some change, please? I'm broke and hungry."

I stopped and addressed him. "I'm really sorry, but I can't. I'm flat broke. I'm overdrawn on my checking account, have almost $100,000 in student loan debt, haven't paid this month's credit card bills, and I owe another half a million on my mortgage. I have a dollar in my wallet but I need it to buy a subway ride home. I have less than you."

"Yeah, you got problems, miss," said the homeless guy. "Worse than me. Good luck to you."

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
