Scene: I am approaching the corner of L and 11th streets. Like most work mornings, I am met by Anthony, a homeless guy who sells his art and newspapers to Capitol community members streaming in and out of the building. It is sunny, but cool.
N: Good morning, Anthony! How are you today?
Anthony: And where is your COAT?!
Anthony: And your HAT?!
N: Uh. *nervous giggle* It's not quite cold enough for all that, is it?
Anthony: (grimly) Well, it's very DAMP.
