Sat out by the Met on a wet bench from about 7 a.m. until 11:30. All the vendors had their stuff covered with tarps, as I did -- and we just waited for the rain to stop - but by 11:30 I had had enough. Hopefully I won't get a cold since I was pretty thoroughly damp. At 11:30 I packed up. As I strode past a group of vendors Borris stopped me and said, I just want to tell you something. It will just take a minute.
I put my grid down and waited. There were about six of them in a huddle. Borris says, we were just talking about you - we've come to the conclusion that you are the only sane one here.
I wished them luck - and traipsed on home with my rig. Once home, I hopped into bed and just woke about (3:30 p.m.)
It's not raining now - but it is still pretty gloomy and I'm guessing no one is doing much business out there. The good thing is that I was easily able to walk home with the rig, and one of the guys told me that I might now be offering competition to Rocco the Etcher. Rocco has been saying that he has the most compact rig, and he does - but mine is the most lightweight.
Anyway - I do feel like I got some sort of a chill - but we'll see. I'm going to crawl back into bed and watch Ice Station Zebra for a few hours.
