Stir Crazy

It's been really cold here for the past couple of days.

It's been particularly tough for me, having just come back from my fabulous South American summer vacation.

On top of that, many law firms have been laying off attorneys, to an extent that's unheard of in history. I have several friends who have lost their jobs, and needless to say, the stress level has been higher than usual all over the City.

I've been cooped up indoors, shivering and doing work, keeping my nose to the grindstone.

So maybe it's caused me to start hallucinating during my commute, the only few minutes each day I can be outside?

I have two pieces of evidence that my mind is playing tricks on me.

FIRST, this morning on my way to work I saw this:

So the lighting is such that it's hard to see in the photo, but if you can't tell, both signals are lit at the same time!! I wasn't sure whether to cross the street or wait! My head almost exploded from the uncertainty.

SECOND, on my way home tonight, I saw a guy commuting home, dressed in a nice business suit, clutching a fancy leather briefcase, and riding a unicycle.
