I was walking up 18th Street at about 10:45 Saturday morning. I was wearing slacks, a rugby tee shirt, and flip flops. I had my ever-present messenger bag slung from shoulder to hip, and I was wearing my big, dark “leave me alone” sunglasses.
There was a man sweeping the porch of a restaurant on the corner of 18th and Kalorama. As I walked past, he stopped sweeping and said “Hey baby.”
I was so surprised that I stopped, looking at him, and just said, “Wow.” in shock and disgust. As I walked away he said, “Have a nice day, ma’am!”
