But he wasn’t.
So there I am at the hotel where I was staying, having gotten dressed and imbibing a cup of generic hotel coffee and standing outside having the first smoke of the day.
(I was in because I had to advise an attorney on a deposition in a lawsuit, and the deposition was like 2.5 hours from home, and I didn’t wanna leave home at 5 AM… to be ready at 8 AM)
Anyway, some other dude wanders up and I say “Good morning”
He looks me straight in the eye and says “you need to calm the fuck down there, partner“. He was serious, I think.
I just shut up. Didn’t wanna start the day with an issue. I had too much on my plate.
I mean, I’m not generally a morning person, but damn.
