"Whatcha waiting for?" asked the elderly tourist, understandably curious as to why a small group of people might be standing on the corner of 34th and 5th in the pouring rain, sometime after midnight.
"Elephants." I told him. He looked skeptical.
"No, seriously. Elephants."
He shrugged, and wandered off into the rain. Evidently he had better things to do than stand on 34th Street all night waiting for passing elephants.
