night last week as I walked to New
York Pizza Depot to satisfy a late
.night craving. That calmness was
shattered when I noticed a group of
about eight people dressed in full
ninja garb, complete with face masks
and hoods, walking towards me.
When they noticed me staring at
them, they raised translucent sticks
which turned out to be toy light-
sabers. Then they waved the blue-lit
sticks at me and turned on the sound
effects. I immediately crossed the
street.

As I jogged by a girl studying
alongside the Diag flower beds on
Sunday afternoon I thought nothing
of her.
I wasn't until I was well past her
that I realized she wasn't alone. She
had brought along a black-and-white
spotted rabbit for moral support.
