Subtle

Bumped into Doctor Niles Crane last night at the parking lot of the Barnes and Noble outside of the Galleria mall near downtown Houston. Immaculately decked out in higher end Ralph Lauren clothing.

Dr. Crane: “Let me tell you that I am not a bummer.”
Me, thinking: “Did he say bomber?”
“I am a university graduate and I live in Clearwater, Florida.”
“Okay.”
“My wallet is gone. I have no money. I can’t reach anyone with my cellphone. I have no gas in my car. Can you help me?”
“What is it that you need?”
“10 or 15 dollars.”

I gave him 20.
