Davis Square Lunch Jerky

Yesterday, a little after 12:30, i was walking to a goodbye lunch with two friends (this was going to be a special friend-gathering, not just any typical run-of-the-mill food-grab). i was telling my friends a story from when i was 6 or 7 years old. i found myself mentally in this childhood scene as I recalled the details of the story: i was back in my young skin next to my parents lying out on the grass under a tree, when suddenly --

"Hey girls! ...DAAAAAAAMN!!!"

Needless to say, i was extra offended as my childhood memory was not only interrupted, invaded, but sexualized in quite an unwelcome way by this stranger who stopped and posed himself on this wall just after passing us.

Now, i'm almost willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, seeing that he did appear to be on the phone...but the horrific feeling i got in my gut did not give him that benefit.
