Ever been so depressed the panhandler stops midway through the ask to check if you're okay because you just look so sad
@ingrid once had a dominican grandma/chef come over and hand feed me plantains off my breakfast plate and tell me things would be ok at a LES restaurant
@ingrid for a while there, i got used to unhoused folks & traveling gutterpunk types in town checking on me to make sure i had a place to stay, or pointing me at good handouts.
this might have had as much to do with my general approach to dressing as with my demeanor, but then again i was depressed as hell at the time, so.
This is a hometown instance run by Sam and Ingrid, for some friends.
