OverkillWritten by hootenannie on December 15th, 2007
Last night, I left Christina and Dan’s apartment to meet them at their downtown law firm. In addition to running a bit behind, the sidewalks were slushy from the previous day’s snow, so rather than walking, I decided to take a cab.
I don’t know how, but I somehow made it to last night without ever hailing a taxi. IN MY LIFE.
As I walked out to Cambridge Street, I tried to psych myself up. “You can do this – you’ve seen people do this a million times. You just raise your arm, and one stops. It will work. It will work.”
But I don’t know what came over me. I couldn’t help myself. The first cab that I saw, I raised my arm, and screamed, “Tak-SAAAAAAY!” just like I’ve seen in the movies, except far more obnoxious. Of course, one immediately stopped. And as I climbed inside, I started laughing – mostly out of embarrassment, but also because THAT WAS SO AWESOME.
