I Chased Down Your Cell Phone Thief
You: The girl with short hair running down N. Henry after a pre-teen thief who grabbed your new cell phone.
Me: The guy in work clothes who caught up with said thief and scared him enough to get him to give it back to you.
It took me a second to figure out exactly what was happening, but it looked like the kid might be getting away, so I ran after him and turned him back towards you (falling on my ass in the process). You slowed him down and wore him out a bit by grabbing his clothes and blocking his getaway. He then sought refuge with a couple of bystanders. (Come to think of it, those guys might have put him up to it in the first place. They didn’t seem at all interested in helping you and the kid seemed to feel safer around them.) At this point the instructor at the Karate place on the corner had come out to help, all kimono and bare feet, so the kid was pretty much trapped. He gave you back your phone along with an apology. You gave me a hug. We let the kid go.
I just wanted to say, thanks for making me feel a little bit like a hero 🙂
Her Two Cents on I Chased Down Your Cell Phone Thief
Superheros walk amongst us! Could this gentleman be super-friends with the Brooklyn Bat Whisperer? Regardless, the truly heroic actions of our poet are to be commended at the highest level. While chasing after villains is never an easy job, you stepped in and helped out when others turned away. Just don’t forget to activate your special powers and put the armor on before you try it again – not all punks are as lame-brain as this one.
Gentle Readers: Extraordinary times call for extraordinary actions, but this poetic tale is truly incredible. Would you be able to spring into superhero mode should the need arise? Have you ever had to?
