That Long Stringy Blonde-Haired Panhandler on Spring Garden

Thanks for being epic. A few weeks ago I was walking with my friends and saw you making eye contact with me. I lifted my hands in a (sincere) I-haven't-got-any-change-on-me-sorry type of pose, but you didn't even seem to be asking. You looked at my hair swaying from the bottom of my hat, and said "Long hair! Good boy!" Now everytime I see you I smile and you say some mumbly, happy, appreciated, form of "hello."
