As I walk through the train station, I’m stopped by a man who says that he hopes I have a blessed day, and he is sending me “yellow balls of positive energy.” I’m not exactly sure what this means, but I say “thank you” and keep walking up the stairs. I beat myself up for not having a more theatrical answer.
