Rudy, my step-dog, and I often hit the streets together. We walk all around town, and sometimes meet people along the way. A few weeks ago we met a group of homeless people. The most memorable in the group was Dee. She put a gorilla mask on and sang The Twist by Chubby Checker. When I told her that my friends wouldn't believe me if I told them the story of the singing, dancing Dee in a gorilla mask, she told me that I better take a picture as proof.
I saw Dee last week while riding my bike through Washington Square Park, and she was all smiles and waves.
