Earlier this week, I was walking from downtown to Dupont Circle at around 7 p.m., and this man went out of his way to kick me! The sidewalks were deserted; it was just the two of us walking towards one another on a collision course. I gave him plenty of room to walk by, but instead he made a beeline for me and kicked me in the ankle. I turned around and he just glared at me.

He looked like Mr. T and I was scared - but nothing came of it, thank goodness... Perhaps I look intimidating.
