It was about 10 PM and I was headed for the exit at the bookstore. A high school aged girl was a few steps behind me. I hadn't changed clothes since leaving work, so I guess I looked like a harmless enough middle aged man to her. I heard her hiccup.

I held the door open and waited for her to come through. Then I couldn't resist telling her that I'd just had an evil impulse - I'd heard her hiccup, and thought of suddenly turning on her and saying "Boo!" just as she went out the door to cure them. She giggled.

About this time we were clear of the building and a chill wind hit. And I'm sure that that's why she started running for her car...
