The $100 Phone Call on Divisadero Near Grove


Good Evening:

I only caught a snippet.

“Wha? Wha?! Wha?? Why you think I’m callin’ you, man?! I’m callin’ you cuz you’s a friend! I wouldn’t call you if you ain’t! Now if you called me, said you needed a hun’erd dollars, I would give it to you. I ain’t got no hun’erd, but I would get it fo’ you somehow, I would pay you a hun’erd dollars, even if I had to rob someone, so I’m askin’ you agin if you gotta hun-erd dollars…”

At which point I arrived at the farmers market and turned off Divisadero to buy potatoes, carrots, eggplant and zucchini for a Turkish vegan stew.
