Confidential to...

...the paranoid woman - young, African-American, athletic - running along the hike-n-bike path in Terry Hershey Park, Houston, on January 5th:

When you say "I can't hear you. Got my headphones on." to someone, in the world of normal, polite people it means "I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you."

     I'm not certain what it means in the nasty-bitch universe you must inhabit; maybe "I don't want to hear you"?

Whatever: if you're that damned paranoid, you shouldn't be wearing headphones out in the world anyway.

Oh, yeah, and all I said to you was, "Thanks for looking back before moving over in front of me." So there.
