an exchange between myself and a young lady at the cash register of an upper west side deli this past friday night:

lady: let me see your eyes
me: (looks up at the lady)
lady: (begins talking to me in spanish)
me: excuse me?
lady: you have pretty eyes (repeats 2 times)
me: thank you
lady: el diablo
me: (exits the store, quickly)

what? did i miss something here or did she call me the devil? do i have such a profound effect on simple people? or is this some racist thing -- her saying white man is the devil... no idea. people weird me out. but in the same token, this is why i love new york so much.
