198. That day it wasn't easy
now the comedic one, ah the misunderstandings... I took a young kid to the ER who was in an accident.

Now I was 19 at the time. He had a swastika tat on his arm. In mexico city mind you, So I went into holocaust mode, and started lecturing. He didn't know what the swastika was. He never finished second grade you see. But he got that one since his hobby is astronomy. That is also a sign of a comet in eastern astronomy as well as Maya. Lord did I feel like an idiot that day.

He told me though, after hearing why I took a slight offense, that things have many meanings.

Again never assume a book by cover.

Kid did not have any formal education, but he was much wiser than people many decades his senior. That is a lesson I take to heart every day of the week and twice on sunday.
