Mr. Trilby

(I amended this entry after receiving helpful feedback from friends on the matter I had written about.)

Without having to travel to another planet or galaxy, I discovered that chilvalry is indeed alive and well (at least in Brooklyn, NY).

Tonight, a man tipped his trilby as he passed by me in the bookstore aisle. It was quite unexpected and I probably blushed. He was coming away from the poetry section as I was sitting in the A-H New Age section attempting to read my palm (incidently, palm reading is not as difficult as I thought it would be, though I still can’t report back on how long I’ll live, how many ducks I’ll own, or how much love I have to give). To the casual observer, I must have appeared a bit deranged as I stared intently at my palm with my hand one inch away from my eyes; it’s difficult to see the lines in the palm of the hand under florescent lighting. So, perhaps Mr. Trilby felt obliged to salute the mentally ill when he passed by me. Either way, it was an unexpectedly nice experience.

Absolute vunerability is the only true courage.
