Come here whiteboy!

Another episode in my walk home from work...

As I was crossing Park Avenue, three black guys were coming the other direction. One threw his hands out as if asking for a hug and yelled "Come here white boy!" Not threatening at all, but definitely bizarre. I'm all for love thy brother, but that was a bit much, so I just laughed, dodged him, and kept going. I would've loved to know what he was thinking, but the middle of a busy street didn't seem like the appropriate place.

But I did look back after I passed them, and the guy's friends seemed to be as surprised as I was.
