The "Dignified Walking Lady" made the scene at 7th and Montana this morning, stopping briefly at Our Favorite Starbucks before continuing on her usual patrol through the neighborhood. Known for her Arctic Sense of Style in 80-degree heat, the Dignified Walking Lady (DWL) is always prepared for anything ranging from a snow squall to a monsoon. Over the years, I've grown to appreciate her sheer tenacity. Today, I struck up a conversation:
Me: Good Morning
Me: Nice, warm weather, isn't it?
Me: Why, it almost feels like Summer!
Me: Oh, well. I'd better be going ...!
DWL: No English ...!
