GURT UR JURRRB!

At some point the other day, a friend was out panhandling and someone told her that she looked too nice to be homeless. When she told me this, I was like "What, because you still have all your original teeth, you don't wear rags, and you bathe?" The same woman also apparently told her she should go and get a job, just as casually as you'd say to go pick up some bread while you're at the store. And I was like, "She's making it sound like it's as easy as ordering food at McDonald's. If you could just go and buy a job, that would be pretty cool. 'Yes, I'll have a job with a side of health care, and hold the taxes.' " Which made her crack up with laughter. :o)

Isn't that it? Yup, I'm street, but about the only people who know are street themselves and see me at the shelters. I wear a nice coat, my backpack and wheeled luggage are both fairly new and in good shape, and I shower regularly and wear decent clothes. PEople frequently think I'm traveling and sometimes ask me which sights I'm planning to see.
