And I Laugh

Seen and heard on La Salle Street, in front of the gorgeous old Rookery Building:

Man in his Jews For Jesus t-shirt, making with the handout literature. Middle-aged woman walking south, meets his eye and says "Hell no" without breaking stride.

Okay, maybe she said "Oh no" or "Ah, no," but it sounded like "Hell no" and I laughed in spite of myself. I realize that peoples' faith isn't really a laughing matter or a punchline, and the poor guy might have felt really bad, but still. I couldn't help myself.

I hope he called after her, "hell yes!"
